Of course it's possible - if somebody can suggest somewhere on the
extremely crowded screen to fit it in.

If that somebody provided the CSS to make the anchor site in the
chosen place then that would be even better as would save me a few
more hours tearing my hair out trying to get CSS to do what I want.

The main reasons I haven't done anything yet are (a) it's hard
work (b) we already have an (admittedly not very good) solution
and hence there are more important things and (c) there was talk
about a more general solution based around a new "Export" tab.
