Using Bookmarks to Move Within a File

How to:

The bookmark option places a bullet next to or removes a bullet from any line in a file. You can place multiple bookmarks in a file by using the Mark All function in the Find dialog box. Once a bookmark is added, you can jump to that bookmark from anywhere in a file. If you have multiple bookmarks, the cursor jumps to the very next bookmark.

Bookmarks are temporary and disappear when you close the Text Editor.
