Topic: bookmark function for jumping through code (Read 135 times) previous topic - next topic


in a beta version of the IDE there was a bookmark function where you could press F3 to jump through the bookmarks in the code. There was a vertical colum in front of the code where a user could set the bookmark by clicking with the mouse. I hope this function will one day be incorporated in the official Arduino IDE release but for now my question is, is there a beta of the latest 1.8.12 where that function is built-in ?


No. The Arduino developers don't seem to have been merging the development work from the master branch of the Arduino IDE into the beta branch recently. It's a lot of work to resolve merge conflicts. Probably that time would be better spent testing and merging the improvements from the beta branch into the master branch instead so we can finally get rid of that beta branch.

So the only option would be for you to merge the bookmark feature from the beta branch source code into the master branch source code, then build the Arduino IDE from source, following these instructions:

Perhaps we'll get a more official answer to your question here:
