Not, I think, something I will use - but I'm well used to editing sets.

Now this sounds useful. I use 4.70a13 (11-Oct-2018) and have modes in
!StrEdCfg, so I put the relevant bit there and did a Rescan dir -> Modes.
This did not pick up the extra mode. I had to reset.

The insert icon does what you say, but I don't find it useful. I think the
mode should number lines so odds are names, evens are Makros. And yes,
that can be done in Mode -> Choices. Then the extra icon could insert two
lines wherever the caret is.

What do others want?

Incidentally deleting a set which is loaded and then trying to reload it
kills Makro. Not sure who would do that anyway!
