Post navigate book tree without leaving editor pane
I would like to be able to navigate thru the tree in a book (eg, user commentary) without having to constantly switch between the tree and the editor. I would like to be able to remain in the editor and navigate thru the tree without having to mouse to the tree to navigate to an adjacent tree node.

I have this functionality in 2-pane outliners Keynote NF and in RightNote - using alt+arrow keys. It is very handy and I use it all the time in those programs, especially helpful for non-mouseketeers like myself. :D

When used in conjunction with clipboard managers, such as Ditto, this makes it very easy to clip sections then paste them all into other applications -- such as msWord to tweak formatting and print.

I have posted a 1:10 minute video (link below) to show what this functionality looks like.

Thanks

In the video, I forgot one additional function of shift+leftArrow.

While in the editor, shift+leftArrow will navigate to the parent tree node without folding the parent tree node. Pressing shift+leftArrow again will fold the tree node. see image.
