- Add custom ROI buttons (define from active ROI)
- Add help button in toolbar

- Save settings in memory for next run
- Show new default group in ImageJ status bar upon pressing numerical keypad shortcuts

- Add numerical keyboard shortcut, such that the 0 to 9 keys of the keypad on the right of the keyboard (not the top row) can be used to set the current roi group


In Fiji, activate the ROI 1-click tools update site.
In ImageJ, copy the file Roi 1-Click Tools.ijm to ImageJ\macros\toolsets
