Bookmark Window

While you are working in a code editor, use the Bookmarks window to create bookmarks in your code. You can display the Bookmarks window from the View menu.

To create and navigate through bookmarks, click the buttons located on the Text Editor toolbar and at the top of the Bookmarks window. You can add and remove bookmarks, activate or disable bookmarks, and organize bookmarks into folders. Certain commands are also available from the Bookmarks window shortcut menu.

TipTip

Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to move among entries in the Bookmarks window. Press ENTER on an entry to switch focus to the location of the bookmark in the editor.

To add or remove a bookmark, place the insertion point on the desired line in the Editor, and then click the Toggle a bookmark on the current line button. To activate a bookmark, select its check box in the Bookmarks window; to disable (but not remove) a bookmark, clear its check box.

You can delete all bookmarks in all files by clicking the Clear all bookmarks in all files button on the Text Editor toolbar.

Caution noteCaution

There is no Undo for this procedure. Afterward, you must use Toggle a bookmark on the current line to create new bookmarks.

Each bookmark has its own check box. To activate an existing bookmark, select its check box in the Bookmarks window. To hide (but not remove) an existing bookmark, clear its check box in the Bookmarks window.
