Didn''t the Inspector used to have a feature that would allow you to drop the value of whatever was selected into IT?'
If so, whatever happened to this feature?  I thought it was a great idea, and noticed it was missing from <LispCore>Next>Full.Sysout'

cc': DMRussell, Roach, Bobrow'
I added two menu items to the middle button title menu of inspect windows. From the new documentation':'
The values displayed in an inspect window can be accessed by commands on the menu brought up by pressing the {lisp MIDDLE} button in the title of the window. The command "{lisp IT←datum}" sets the variable IT to the object being inspected in this window.  This is normally displayed in the title of the window.  The command "{lisp IT←selection}" sets the variable IT to the current property name or value selected in the inspect window.'
I also changed the default SET routine to use GETPROMPTWINDOW.'
