New tool setup constants

From the "what's new and good in PN2 0.5.5" department:

In PN2 0.5.5 you can now get the project and project group paths when building up tool parameters. You can't find these constants in the interface yet, as they use a new scheme that has only just been introduced. The next version will make this more obvious but for now, here are the constants:

$(ProjectPath)
$(ProjectGroupPath)

Remember all paths include a trailing path separator. If no project or project group is open and valid then these constants evaluate to nothing.

In the future I will be moving more towards this more expressive type of constant and away from the old type, %x constants prove difficult to remember.

Hi,
I've tried the "Jump To" function, I think feature should be located permanently in the left pane as a tab. Well, i guess this is my wish :)

oh, and one thing, the "Jump To" function doesnt search across all the files in a project. This defeats the main purpose of this feature - to locate/grab hold of a function easilly. I hope it will improves.
