Yeah, but WHERE are they? I have to save the file and look at the xml to
remember which paragraph I attached them too. How do I find them to delete them?

It's a UI issue, not a functionality issue.


PS: I might be able to figure out that I turn on "show paragraphs" to see the bookmarks,
will most users?

Little bits of graphics are left on the screen by "show paragraphs". The point was that
maybe bookmarks are a feature that's perfectly good, and on the road to success, but
not quite done at this time. What's the policy for "good features not ready yet"
for 1.0? In, out, or heroic effort to fix them?
