The Manual Go To menu is quite versatile as you can see in figure 2.3. The options of = represents goto the position indicated in the textbox; + indicates to goto forward the additional number in the textbox; and - means to go in the reverse direction the number in the textbox. If you use Enter in the textbox, the menu will stay up so that you can use it without having to continuously pop it up. If you use the OK check instead, the menu will be taken down. The pulldown arrow to the right of the textbox sets the Time Format for the units to be used for position changing. This lets you change the units without having to modify your Preference.
