My suggestion would be to have a submenu of the automation menu,  
called "Edit..." or something, whose subitems would be the various  
"Edit Commands..." etc, so here you could include Preferences,  
Templates, the lot.

Alas, it will shift the focus. They way I work with the bundle editor  
is, I select the body of the command, copy and paste it onto an  
untitled window, work with it, then select the whole thing and paste  
it back. So with commands, just going back to the window through cmd- 
` and pressing Cmd-v does the trick, no need for a mouse click,  
because the whole text is still selected there. with the ctrl-opt-cmd- 
B combo, the text is deselected, and the focus is on the bundle list,

I meant the space in the substitution part of the regexp. Why doesn't  
something like:
s/^\\section\{(.+)\}/     $1/;
produce those spaces between / and $1? Isn't this a standard sed  
pattern? We are telling it to look for \\section\{ then something  
then \} , and to replace that by a couple of spaces followed by the  
something. Why the need for a special kind of space character like em- 
space there?
In general, what kinds of things are allowed at this part? I tried to  
do variable substitution to turn $1 into a series of dashes with the  
same length, but it wouldn't do it.
