Hi Oliver,
	I certainly agree that that capability would be nice.  Unfortunately, the cross-platform GUI toolkit we use, Tk, has no such capability, so to implement it we would have to write and debug custom code for each of the three platforms (Mac, Windows, Linux) that we support.  We will note it on the wish list, but it may have to wait for Chimera 2…
