I tend to use bookmarks a lot, but only every for a single task at hand.
Currently however I work on a large, existing code base that is new to me and I'd like to set some more durable pointers to specific parts of code.
I tried to give the Favorites feature a shot.
Ultimately neither Bookmarks nor Favorites can really do what I need.
Advantages of Favorites:
- Multiple lists possible
- Dedicated toolwindow
Advantages of Bookmarks:
- Remember specific lines in a file
- Keyboard shortcuts available out of the box
- more lightweight to work with
Can we have the best of both worlds, please?
- Pointers to exact lines
- editable names
- multiple lists
- keyboard shortcuts
- both a quick popup and a toolwindow (much like we have the Structure toolwindow and the Structure popup)
In fact when I searched in YouTrack, I found several similar or related requests, so this seems to be a common whish.
