It's funny—when she was writing this tip, she started looking all around the Find And Replace window trying to figure out where the option was to bookmark all of the results. Finally, it jumped right out at her. =)




If you hit Bookmark All instead of Find Next, bookmarks will be dropped at all the found locations.

And if you've accidentally bookmarked half of your code by searching for a frequently used search term (like she did the first time she tried this), simply open the Bookmarks window (View–Bookmarks Window), press Ctrl+A to select all bookmarks, and then hit Delete.

Happy Programming! =)

Sara Ford's Blog



There's a Bookmarks window that allows you to organize and arrange your bookmarks. You can create folders and store bookmarks within them.



Once you've organized your bookmarks, you can add the Shift key to the bookmark navigation keyboard shortcuts to navigate within the folder:
  • Use Ctrl+Shift+K, Ctrl+Shift+P to move to the previous bookmark in the folder.
  • Use Ctrl+Shift+K, Ctrl+Shift+N to move to the next bookmark in the folder.

Press Ctrl+K, Ctrl+N to navigate to the next bookmark. The command is Edit.NextBookmark.

Press Ctrl+K, Ctrl+P to navigate to the previous bookmark. The command is Edit. PreviousBookmark.



You can also quickly get rid of all your bookmarks by pressing Ctrl+K, Ctrl+L. The command is Edit.ClearBookmarks.

All of these commands can be found under the Edit–Bookmarks menu and on the Text Editor toolbar.
