  • Using Bookmarks In PB IDE ?

    Using PB/CC 6.0.4..

    In the IDE, "Edit" menu, is an entry for " Go to Bookmark Ctrl+B"

    But darned if I can find how to set/unset bookmarks, either via menu or any documented hotkeys in the help file

    I always liked these and in my return to programming (a couple of years) I miss them.

    Ooops..... on a whim I tried CTRL+n and ALT+n to Go TO, mark or unmark bookmark 'n' ... and that works.

    But it does not change the fact, I either missed how to do this in the help file (there is no index entry for "bookmark") or the info is missing/poorly indexed so that should be updated next release of the help file.

    Reminding me....

    It would be fine by me for a "updated help file only" patch release, incorporating all the changes suggested in the now-absent "omline documentation" forum. No, no compiler changes required... the help is every bit as much a part of the products as are the compiler "exe" files.

    ALT+1 sets bookmark number 1
    CTRL+1 goes to bookmark number 1

    Use 1 to 9 as 9 different bookmarks.

    ALT+1 with the cursor on the bookmarked line unsets bookmark 1.

      I figured that out (or maybe I remembered it) , Paul... but I was whining about the apparent lack of documentation of this feature.

      If I hadn't remembered I'd be whining louder.

          How about Right Click-Toggle Bookmark?

          I want not 'not', not Knot, not Knott, not Nott, not knot, not naught, not nought, but aught.

            It's actually ALT+0 to 9, giving you 10 BMs.

              My rule is, if you cannot find it in the help, it may as well not be in the help.

              One the page explaining the use of "Go to Bookmark" on the edit menu, there is no link to how you set/unset bookmarks. For that matter, there (apparently) is no way to set/unset bookmarks EXCEPT by using the hotkeys.

              Whatever, Mr. Drake cam read this and file it away for the next version of the help file.

                .
                What we have here (apparently) is yet another failure to read the other posts in the thread

                As pointed out by Rodney in Post #5 some 13 hours before you posted this, "Right Click - Toggle Bookmark" does this.

                  Via hotkeys, this is so. Using the Right Click -Toggle Bookmarks give you at least 26 more by using the alphabet.

                        This shows that using the mouse gets you more from the IDE, what else have you been missing?

                          Actually the context menu can be opened / navigated with the keyboard and anyway Alt+B works, without the context menu open, to set new bookmarks (numeric and alphabetical)

                              Say.... does this qualify as multi-tasking?

                                  Press keyboard Menu Key then letter o

                                  (Can't find the Menu Key? see here)

                                  - BTW I'm a mouser too, most of the time

                                    Don't have one of those Menu Keys on my laptop, all I have to the right of the space bar are j Alt, Ctrl and arrow keys

                                    And despite what that link says, Shift + F10 doesn't work in the IDE (but it does work in Firefox!)

                                      The AutoHotkey solution in that link could be an answer with your setup, using Ralt::RButton for example.

                                      Seems to work ok even with the PB IDE.

                                        I'd give it a go if I wasn't quite content with the mouse
