Text markers can be used to move back and forth between two locations. This is ideal when you need to compare two pieces of text.


You can put an invisible marker in the text at any time by hitting the F9 key. You can move to another location and place a second marker by hitting F9 again. Only two markers are active at one time. If you hit F9 a third time, the oldest marker is moved to the current position. The marker not only remembers the cursor position but also how the screen was positioned, so that the marker returns you to the exact same screen image that was marked. This is useful for comparing two blocks of text by flipping back and forth between them.


If you hit F10, the cursor moves to either the most recently set marker; or if you just moved to a marker, the cursor moves to the other marker.
