Favorites and Bookmarks

I am currently working on a large codebase that is new to me.
It would help tremendously if I could organize bookmarks into groups - or if favorites would point a speific places in a file.

This is basically an old discussion and some work has been done to improve bookmarks and favorites handling ( see http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-84340 and related issues).
However I feel we still have only a half a**** solution and that's very un-IDEA-like!

I can see both bookmakrs and favorites in a separate toolwindow, but

  • I can only organize my _favorites_ into groups, but favorites do not reference specific methods/places in a file.
  • Bookmarks reference specific places in a file, but I cannot organize them into groups.

Add to that a large number of other issues (see YouTrack) and what it means to is: I do not use favorites at all. I use bookmarks only as very short-lived reminders for the current task I am working on.

I am pretty sure thath there is an issue in YouTrack that says to enhance favorites with the option to point to specific places in a file, but I coul donly find an issue in the OC project (OC-5669)which I think isn't build ion the platform code, right?
