    • Copy As Html: Provides support for the HTML Clipboard format when cutting for copying code from the editor
    • Ctrl+Click GoTo Definition: Enables clickable hyperlinks to symbols in source code in your code by holding down the Ctrl key when hovering with the mouse
    • Custom Document Well: Allows users to change the behavior of their document tabs
    • Double-Click Maximize: Maximize any docked window by double-clicking its title bar and restore/dock by double-clicking again
