Bookmarks Panel

Bookmarks are great tools to make navigation in your code easier — even in small projects you may want to have some often visited places marked with bookmarks, which are easily available by a hotkey, while in big projects you may require tens of bookmarks with a hierarchical organization and dynamic bookmarks visibility depending on the tasks you are doing at the moment.

You can call this panel from the Main Menu: View ⇒ Bookmark Window, or using the hotkey Ctrl+K, Ctrl+W.


Open the Bookmarks panel from the Main Menu


The Bookmarks panel is responsible for displaying bookmarks and the information about them, providing tools to configure the hierarchical structure or visibility options and add new bookmarks.

At the top of the panel you can find following buttons:

Toggle bookmark on the current line Toggle a bookmark Adds or removes the bookmarks on a line.
New folder New folder Creates a folder for the bookmarks. Ctrl+K,
Ctrl+F
Move the caret to the previous bookmark Previous bookmark Moves the caret to the prev. bookmark. Ctrl+K,
Ctrl+P

Ctrl+N

Ctrl+Shift+P

Ctrl+Shift+N
Enable / Disable all bookmarks Enable / Disable all bookmarks Enables or disables all the bookmarks.
Delete Delete bookmark / folder Deletes selected bookmark(s) or folder(s).

Below the toolbar you can see all the bookmarks in the current solution with the name, the file, and the line number specified for each bookmark. You can disable or enable each bookmark or folder by checking / unchecking the checkbox next to its name — disabled bookmarks are not displayed in the editor and are not used when switching to the next / the previous bookmarks.

By default, the new bookmark has the name Bookmark1. You may rename it using the context menu. If you want to organize your bookmarks, you should create folders and simply drag&drop the bookmarks in the list to get your desired structure.

To open the code line of the current bookmark, just double-click on this bookmark in the panel.
