More Vim fun! This time looking at bookmarks.
To create a bookmark, simply type ‘m
To create a global bookmark, useful for when you have multiple files open, just change the letter to uppercase (for example: ‘mA’)
To see all of your bookmarks type ‘:marks’ and to see info about a bookmark type ‘:marks
And – it wouldn’t be vim without a few hidden goodies – you can replace the letter with a full-stop to jump to the last edit.
- ma – Creates a bookmark called a
- mA – Creates a global bookmark called A
- `a – Jump to the exact location (line and column) of the bookmark a
- ‘a – Jump to the beginning of the line of the bookmark a
- :marks – Display all the bookmarks
- :marks a – Display the details of the bookmark with name a
- `. – Jump to the exact location (line and column) where the last change was performed
- ‘. – Jump to the beginning of the line where the last change was performed
