ReSharper 2021.2 Help

Navigate breakpoints

With ReSharper, you can quickly jump to any breakpoint/tracepoint in your solution and study all breakpoints in a dedicated tool window, which features grouping, search, preview, and symbol names.

Jump to a breakpoint

  1. Press Control+Alt+F9 or choose ReSharper | Navigate | Breakpoints… from the main menu. Alternatively, you can press Control+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

  2. In the Breakpoints popup that opens, you will see all breakpoints defined in your solution.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Click the desired breakpoint to go to the corresponding line in the editor.

    • Select the desired breakpoint by pressing Up and Down and then press Enter to go to the corresponding line.

    • To find a breakpoint, start typing the name of the containing project, class, member, or contents of the line where the breakpoint is defined. The input field is case-insensitive and allows you to type any parts of the above-mentioned items separated by whitespaces:

    • To remove a breakpoint, select it in the list by pressing Up and Down and then press Delete.

ReSharper also brings its own R# Breakpoints window, which you can use as an alternative to the Visual Studio's native window — you can start typing to search for a breakpoint or use context menu to enable/disable or remove breakpoints. You can check how the both differ from each other on the screenshot below.
