Feature idea -- what do you guys think?

The files I'm working in these days have been hanging around for years, and have accumulated a lot of TODO comments.  I've cleaned up all the code errors, warnings, and suggestions, and now I'm trying to go through all the accumulated TODO comments and resolve a bunch of them.  It's handy being able to see them in the marker bar, but what I'd really love is to be able to turn on an option so that the Go To Next Highlight button would also take me to TODO items, rather than having to click each one individually in the marker bar...

Not exactly a world-changing feature, but for me, it would make Reshaper just that little bit handier... Does anyone else think this idea makes sense?  Would it be a huge pain to implement?  Any thoughts?

Hello Chris,

Open To-do Browser, and use Go to next/prev occurence.

I was thinking more along the lines of having it available from the keyboard shortcut... When I'm doing this kind of cleanup, I find that errors, warnings, and suggestions are pretty good indicators of where I need to work, so I just use the keyboard shortcuts to bounce around between them.  I use the mouse so rarely that any time I do need to use it for something, I find it disrupts my concentration a little.  The idea is to be able to just keep focusing on what I'm trying to do, rather than on the tools that allow me to do it.  Anything that helps me stay focused on my work is a good thing.

Yes, I realise this sounds pretty lazy.

Hello,

keyboard shortcut...


Indeed, there's a keyboard shortcut for that :) See ReSharper -> Search ->
Goto Next.

After you open the Todo Browser and perform any navigation from it, the search
navigation actions start working over this list -- the same way they attach
itself to Find Results, File Structure View and so on.
