But without the mouse, how will it know what specific location to  
search for? I suppose source->PDF could sync to the location of the  
current selection, but what about PDF->source?

I think they're supposed to appear when you hold down the Alt key (or  
is it Ctrl?), but I don't run Windows enough to really know what is  
expected. I haven't done anything special to support them but I  
thought Qt did this automatically.

BTW, there are probably lots of commands that don't have any  
accelerator keys defined (because I'm not accustomed to using them),  
so suggestions of what should be added are welcome. (Also note that  
these can be changed during localization.)

True! :-)

Yes, I intend to do this. One issue to keep in mind is that when  
they're re-opened, the screen may not be the same size any more, so we  
need to make sure they're not off-screen and inaccessible!
