Add navigate back and forward on the top bar


CLion has a back and forward navigation using ctrl+alt+left and ctrl+alt+right, but this requires using two hands. Usually when I am navigating code I am holding ctrl to click to follow a call hierarchy or going through definitions, so I need either something that I can use only the mouse or only the left hand.

Is there a way to simply fixate the buttons for back and forward from the navigate menu to the toolbar on top? This way I could just click the buttons. I really like CLion, but I need to jump around multiple different IDEs to verify I didn't broke anyone's workflow when I am coding, so memorizing CLion shortcuts while keeping all others in mind is hard, so I would appreciate buttons on top.

In the main menu select View > Appearance and enable Toolbar. It has the back/forward buttons. Is that what you're looking for?
