History navigation with a memory

While the history navigation buttons are extremely useful, one problem is that they always send you to the beginning of the document. Ideally, I’d like to have it return to the place I was looking at so that when I go back and forth I can compare or see the points that had specifically interested me.

The history navigation buttons remember the cursor location. However, you have to be in the Editor for it to work.

Often, someone will click an item in the Binder, read it without editing anything, and then use the Back button to go back to the previous document. In this situation, the Binder still has the focus after the Back command.

Do the same thing, but click in the Editor view for the new document, and you’ll get the results you want. Or else use the Navigate → Move Focus To → Editor command. (Or shortcut.)

Bonus Tip: Enable View → Text Editing → Typewriter Scrolling to scroll the view so that the cursor location is in the middle of the page.

Ok, cool, thanks. It isn’t immediately intuitive, but if it gets the job done, so be it.
