- Tap "Shift" "Delete" to delete the entire entry text
- Tap "\" to discard the entry edit and exit edit mode
- Tap "Shift" "Enter" to save the entry edit and exit edit mode 
  - added text requires manual formatting to avoid overflow 
  - recommend to add new lines of text only on completed pages, otherwise may   
    overflow on subsequent game play journal entry

Insert new pages
- Tap "Shift" "Arrow Right" to insert 2 new pages between the open 2  \
  or after inserting, to move between editing pages left to right or right to left 
  - only 2 new pages per 2 pages supported at this time 
  - at least one journal entry must be recorded to enable edit features 
  - requires manual formatting to avoid overflow

v1.1:
Insert book art images
- Tap "Alt" "Arrow Right" or "Arrow Left" to insert/select book art images
  - art images available from books read in game
  - limit of one image per inserted page
- Tap "Alt" "+" or "-" to coarsely scale the image larger or smaller
- Tap "Alt" "]" or "[" to finely scale the image larger or smaller

v1.11:
  - custom images may be placed in Data Files\BookArt\Journal\
    folder or sub-folders for general access
    - dds or tga format only, 2^N sizing (such as 512x512) only
    - append _<width>_<height> (such as image_377_255.dds)
      for custom aspect ratio scaling

Hyperlinked topics 
All of the above functions should work for journal topics pages 
Adding hyperlink text should be automatically highlighted and linked

Convenience hot keys, not in search or edit mode
- Tap "Tab" to close the Journal menu ("J" will begin a search)
  also returns from hypertext link journal pages to the main journa
l- Tap or hold "Arrow Left" or "Arrow Right" to turn to the next or prev pages
  (key board alternate to mouse wheel)

Tidiness:
-Hides redundant date headers on the same page 
 Example: only one "16 Last Seed (Day 1)" header would appear on page 1
- Compresses the space between entries
  Combined, these changes free up space to add text in editing mode

Mod Configuration Menu:
- Customize the the hot key bindings described above
- Enable/disable/tune journal tidiness features described above
- Page turning, search indication and UI latency timing
