You are correct. It is just not where I would have expected it, so
perhaps our menu system is counter intuitive. I would have expected it
under the Go menu, but it is under the Edit menu (and I did not notice
that they were grayed out when I looked under the Edit menu, perhaps
because I was not expecting them there.)
