If you want to return to some place in your code later, you can mark any code line in your solution or in library code with a bookmark.

There are two kinds of bookmarks that you can use:

  • Bookmarks with mnemonics — are most useful for marking code lines that you ofter refer to, like top 10 places in your current solution. You can have up to 10 numbered bookmarks simultaneously. They are indicated by the following icons on the left editor gutter: bookmarkNumber

    Use dedicated shortcuts for this kind of bookmarks: Ctrl+Shift+<digit> toggles the bookmark with this digit; Ctrl+<digit> navigates to the bookmark with this digit.

    You can also use letters as mnemonics, for example bookmarkMnemonic if you add a bookmark with Ctrl+F11.

  • Anonymous bookmarks— are allowed in unlimited numbers so you can mark any line, which you think is worth returning to at some time in the future. They are indicated by the following icon on the left editor gutter: bookmarkCheck

    You can toggle bookmarks of this kind with Ctrl+K, K and navigate them from the bookmarks popup Ctrl+`.
