Edit Places in the file chooser/Nautilus---Fedora 18

So, I want to add and remove some of the default locations in the file chooser and Nautilus. I'm aware a number of things were removed without replacements in this release (losing dual-pane mode was a huge productivity loss for me) but I don't recall reading anything about this issue so I am hoping that there is an easy fix (perhaps some gsettings key I missed).

Hi Liam, there used to be a .gtk-bookmarks file in your home directory you could edit to control what Places pointed to. It appears the file has moved in Fedora 18. Look in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks. By default the file should look like this:

file:///home/username/Documents

file:///home/username/Music

file:///home/username/Pictures

file:///home/username/Videos

file:///home/username/Downloads

You should be able to edit that file to change or remove the entries, or add additional entries. You can probably add remote locations too via a url pointing to the protocol.
