You can use the entry in the project menu, if your project has a main script 
defined. It is this script, that gets executed and determines the name of the 
project coverage file.

This functionality is already there. In the "Show coverage" dialog open the 
context menu and select "Annotate". This produces a file with the 
extension ,cover. This file has the lines marked with some characters telling 
you the coverage status. You may open this file in the editor.
