It isnt a half-baked implementation when all other apps use the same dialog,
and we do as well in the Basic IDE.

> My point is: keep the menu clean and promote the navigator.

According to the HIG, the menus have all commands in them, and the menu is
where most users who use this option will be going to find it, if not using the
shortcut key. I looked for this feature in the menu and it was the reason i
opened this enhancement.

Yes adolfo mentioned this in comment 4. :D

Yes definitely a good enhancement to have.

Regarding the page number statusbar entry, i've opened a separate bug report
(bug 100716) for that and their isnt a means of including an input box in a
context menu that i'm aware of, and doubt it would be a good UI.

Yes Akshay is working on this and Samuel mentioned that he should likely use
that uno command for it.
