Agreed! That would be very usefull.

Friendly reminder; there is still a bug that makes the character
that's supposedly offensive increment in the error report after
re-trying to run the same code which already got a error (for example
because you're stuborn, drunk or suspect you hit the wrong hotkey
first time'round).

For bonus points; highlight the offending character when code fails to run.

Would be very usefull indeed. Helpfull note for Mac native developers;
in Windows the standard way of doing this is "Ctrl + Tab" to cycle
forward and the same plus shift to cycle back

Also; something I thought of myself a while ago. I frequently have the
situation where I type things "from the inside towards the outside"
with regard to brackets. I might write a inner loop first, then add
another around it or write some statement to later place this inside
of the brackets of a function-call.

What I think might be a nice time-saver would be highlighting some bit
if text,then hitting "[", "(" or "{" and making the mini enclose that
bit of text in that kind of bracket.

This might need some thought/debate because it's definately
non-standard. My resoning is that the moment when you need this are
exactly the moment where you are mentally jugeling a relatively large
amount of things and anything that breaks the flow of thought at that
point is likely to lead to mistakes.
