typo in title: Do others need *

 

The lengthier the code becomes, in my case => more searching (Ctrl+F) => the more I need to move back and forward in the code.

Other IDE's have these back and forward buttons, or shortcuts at least.

Is there a way in metaeditor to go back and forward?

If not, am I the only one needing this?

I thought to post here first, not bothering service desk with this

Ctrl-F2 - set mark in code

F2 - jump to the next mark in code

Or double click the line number to toggle breakpoints.

That's not the same breakpoints are for debugging.

Breakpoints are used to interrupt program execution under debugger. I don't think that's what Mihai asked.

 

Anyway, besides Ctrl-F2 and F2, there is Ctrl+- (Ctrl and minus) and Ctrl-shift+- (Ctrl-Shift and minus) for navigating forward/backward between last cursor positions.

Open Metaeditor help and look for Hotkeys. Some interesting things are there

Thank you guys

Sounds good, I was not aware of these shortcuts => I can't wait to try them  :) 

 

Nice! After reading the Hotkeys section in help (thanks Drazen for the hint), the most intuitive for me are:

Alt+Leftarrow

Alt+Rightarrow 

 

 instead of ctrl+- and the other one
