you may be misunderstanding the case i'm referring to.
eg when i want to do a case-sensitive search & call up the Options Form,
if i enter the link (i've forgotten the number off-hand, say it's  [8] ),
the hilite moves there & i have to do Enter to get the box to expand
so that i can select the appropriate line
(before exiting the box & accepting the change).
if i did want to simply goto there & sit without opening the box
-- RL says he sometimes wants to do that, but i can't think why -- ,
i can enter  8g , which will do just that.
entering  8  followed by Enter should goto the box AND expand it:
you can always exit again without changing the selection.
