I there an equivalent to VS Navigate Backward?
« on: June 20, 2019, 06:09:53 pm »
Hi all:

After scrubbing through 1500+ pages of documentation looking for this fairly straightforward feature, I turn to you. I'm looking for an equivalent to Visual Studio (View.NavigateBackward) or eclipse (Last Edit Location).
The VS navigate backward simply walks back through previous edit locations whether in the current file, or other files.

A very simple use case is this:

I am editing method A in the middle of a long source file, and now I go work on method B somewhere else in the same file. I realize I need to make a change back in method A.

In VS, this is me hitting View.Navigatebackward three of four times and I am right back to method A.

I understand how to do this with bookmarks, but in the use case I provided, I didn't know to drop a bookmark in method A in the first place.

Obviously, this is not the same as SE Navigate Backward, which acts like a browser - walking back through files.

What am I missing? This seems like fairly straightforward functionality in other IDEs.
