Working with Bookmarks

There are several commands that work with bookmarks.

Working with Active Bookmarks Group

Toggle Bookmark

Puts a bookmark on the currently active cell (a cell with a cursor). If there is already bookmark (in an active bookmarks group) on the current cell, it is removed. If there are no bookmarks groups defined for the active document, the new one is created and becomes active.

Complexity: constant-time.

Next Bookmark

The cursor is moved to the beginning of the next bookmark within the active bookmarks group. If there are no more bookmarks till the end of the document, the cursor is moved to the beginning of the very first bookmark in a group.

Complexity: constant-time.

Previous Bookmark

The cursor is moved to the beginning of the previous bookmark within the active bookmarks group. If there are no more bookmarks till the beginning of the document, the cursor is moved to the beginning of the very last bookmark in a group.

Complexity: constant-time.

Working with Selected Bookmarks Group

Selection to Bookmarks

Current editor window's multiple selection is converted to bookmarks and added to the selected bookmarks group. If there are no bookmarks groups defined for the active document, the new one is created.

Complexity: from constant-time to linear-time.

Bookmarks to Selection

The selected bookmarks group is converted to the current editor window's selection. If the window currently does not have a selection, the bookmarks group is silently converted into selection, otherwise, you are presented with a following choice:

  • New selection - the current selection is dropped and bookmarks group is converted into the selection.
  • Add to selection - the current selection and bookmarks group are merged together.
  • Subtract from selection - the current bookmarks group is subtracted from the selection.

Complexity: linear-time (depends on the number of blocks in the selection and/or bookmarks group)

Other Commands

Save Bookmarks…

All defined bookmarks groups are saved to the file.

Complexity: linear-time.

Load Bookmarks…

Load one or several bookmarks groups from a file. In addition, loading data from selection files is also supported.

Complexity: linear-time.
