Goto Line/Page/Bookmark command


The Goto Line/Page/Bookmark menu item presents a dialog that allows the user to specify the line/column number, page break, or bookmark at which the cursor should be positioned. Users may also specify relative positions if desired.  For example, "+6" would cause the caret to be positioned 6 lines below its current position, and "-8" would cause the caret to be positioned 8 lines prior to its current position.

 

 

When Page Break is selected, the cursor is positioned at the line with the specified page break character.

 

When Line/Column is selected, the cursor is positioned at the line/column specified and the line is scrolled into view.  If the line number is greater than the number of lines in the file, the cursor is positioned at the end of the file.  If the column number is greater than the number of columns in the file, the cursor is positioned at the end of the specified line.

 

When Bookmark is selected, the cursor is positioned at the line with the specified bookmark.

 

When the Shift Key is pressed at the same time as performing the Goto function, the current selection (if present) or a new selection will be extended to select text up to the cursor position following the command.

 

In Hex mode the goto dialog allows the user to select the offset into the file at which the cursor should be positioned.  If the offset is greater than the file size, the cursor is positioned at the end of the file.
