Keep 'Go to Page' option in view menu not in edit menu

It's a small thing, but -- if you are posting that recommendation here, rather than in Bugzilla 
<>, in order to test sentiment -- I will agree with you: 
putting 'Go to Page' (Ctrl-G) in the View menu, rather than the Edit menu, would seem more logical and 
more consistent with other applications.

That said, I can't say that I've noticed the change.  Was this a change? If so, at what point?  If 
we know that, the most useful place to start is probably with the release notes.

I suspect there are two reasons for never thinking about this:

(1) The keyboard Go-to (Ctrl-G) is mnemonically natural enough (and therefore quick) that I'm never 
tempted to mouse through a menu for the function.

(2) More important, LO does not have in any form (via keystrokes or menu) the usual complement to 
'Go-to', which is 'Go-back' (return to prior page/view, usually implemented via something like 
Alt-LeftArrow).  Without a complementary 'Go-back', 'Go-to' lacks the utility to be a compelling 
part of the toolkit.  It might be most useful to address that before thinking about where to 
organize the function in the menu.

Kind regards,
