Move BBEdit palette windows

Howdy! I can't get the move or manipulate windows commands to move palette windows in BBEdit. I've found a lot of solutions for moving Keyboard Maestro palettes, but none that work for moving another application's palettes.

I'm trying to move the Markers and Jump Points windows in BBEdit.

They aren't "normal" windows. Luckily for us BBEdit has extensive AppleScript support so you can do it that way -- note that BBEdit has to be the active application for this to work. So for the "Character Inspector" palette

tell application "BBEdit"
	set position of palette "Character Inspector" to {100, 100}
end tell

Change the name to match your palette and the coordinates to top-left corner position you want. You can hard-code it in a KM "Execute AppleScript" action or pass in instance variables if you want -- that'll be easier to show if you pst your macro.
