Bookmark Scrollbar display
Is there a way to see where all my bookmarks are in my document. Either on the line numbers or on the scrollbar? I couldn’t find any way to do it in NP++ or a plugin.
It is a problem; perhaps the biggest challenge would be how to represent it in the user interface. Perhaps in the future the Document Map could have a few pixels (colored blue to match the normal bookmark symbol) in it to show where the bookmarks are, but that would maybe not be ideal as it might be so small as to be a strain on the eyes…
As a compromise solution for myself, I have a script that keeps a section of the status bar updated with how many bookmarks I currently have set (if under a certain #), and in which direction the closest one is from the caret. Not a perfect solution, but workable for now.
I am thinking something like Visual Studio toolbar. This image shows red dots as break points and grey dots as bookmarks. Pretty easy to see.
as you said
Either on the line numbers or on the scrollbar?
and because line numbers would change while scrolling,
it makes me think you have unchecked
Could this be?
@Claudia-Frank you are correct it makes more sense on the scrollbar than the line numbers. I do not have that setting turned off. The scrollbar shows you the whole document so it would make more sense to show them in the scrollbar like my screen shot above from Visual Studio.
When you have multiple bookmarks on the document it would be really nice to be able to see where you are at in relation to the bookmarks on the document. This is what Visual studio allows you to see. (am i above or below my bookmark.) I know you can do that with line numbers but when you have multiple its just hard to keep track.
