    Bookmarks in VS 2015

    In Visual Studio 2008, there is an option to move to the previous or next bookmark in the current document.

    This was replaced in Visual Studio 2015 with move to the previous or next bookmark in the current folder!

    Very disappointing. It is more useful to move around bookmarks in a document than in a folder! Specially if the document is large.

    Any possible way of going back to the VS 2008 option for bookmarks in a document?

    thanks...

    Do you have focus on the code page window when you cycle through the bookmarks? Or is focus on the solution explorer? It might make a difference.

    Hi Arjay,

    I does not seem to make any difference where the focus is. But normally, my focus is on the current cpp or h file I've bookmarked.

    I have attached screen captures of the vs2008 and vs2015 available bookmarks.

    Note that vs2008 has two additional icons to the right of the folder option for moving around the document bookmarks.

    I don't have VS 2015, I have 2017. I would expect the IDE is similar though. Even though the additional icons don't show up, you can add them to the bookmarks toolbar (not the bookmarks window).

    The bookmarks toolbar appears up in the menu area. You can click the down arrow to the right of the toolbar bookmark icons and click "Add or remove buttons". Then you'll get a list of bookmark related operations to add. Just click on the ones you want and they'll appear in the toolbar.

    Then the bookmark toolbar will appear with the missing icons.

    Hope this helps (and hope this is available on VS 2015).

    Arjay,

    It was a little tricky to find the bookmark toolbar customization.

    But I was able to find it in VS2015 by clicking on View - Toolbars and checking Text Editor!

    Go figure! You can now add or remove bookmark buttons as you described.

    Thanks....
