more than just functions in this navigator-function pane

I recently noticed that the functions pane in the navigator window also shows typedef's, macros, and enum constants. I first noticed this with version 3.97a but it may have been there in previous versions since I don't use this pane a lot. I just updated to 3.97d Beta4 which also has the problem.

I recently noticed that the functions pane in the navigator window also shows typedef's, macros, and enum constants.
Originally the Functions
pane was loaded with function information from the tag database for the currently active file and for the case where the file did not exist in the database it just said 'File not in workspace'
Later on this was changed so that for the 'file not found'
case the pane was loaded using the regexp defined in the document type.
While this change was getting added I also decided to display additional tag information in this pane and this is what you are now seeing

I'm sure you like it this way, but is there any way I can change this? Typical files of mine have a 1 or 2 dozen functions, but possibly many dozens of enum values, etc. The functions are so difficult to find now making this pane unusable because other previous harder function searching methods just became the easier ones.

I too would like to put in a request to allow this to be configured. In COBOL, functions are paragraphs (which the FunctionFindAll shows fine), but what shows in the function pane includes hundreds of record names (classes) defined in the program. At least they are alphabetized separately, but it would sure be easier to find a specific paragraph on the list if that's all that was there.
