Re: [isabelle] Isabelle2016-RC3: delayed updated of error bar in main text area

Hi Andreas,

We have large proofs too and often find ourselves "looking for the red
bit" while no red bit appears in the text overview. Additionally,
clicking with the mouse isn't super accurate. Please consider trying out
my hack to jump to the first error in the current theory file:

I have it bound to ctrl+shift+e and use it all the time.

Hopefully this will help a bit.
