Click a section to scroll that menu item into view. Shift + Hover over a section to scroll that menu item into view (very useful when dragging menu items over long distances).

These IDs are present on the front-end and are useful for styling. Toggle Descriptions Quickly toggle Descriptions on and off to save space. This is the same as clicking in the Description checkbox in the Screen Options, just more convenient. Toggle Scroller Width Sometimes it’s just easier to have a wider scroller for easier clicking/hovering Hints Toggle Tooltip hints on and off. Hover over a hint to highlight it.
