Suggestion for addition to navigation.

Ability to set and retreive bookmarks in different files. For example
whenever I have some code that I know I'm going to need again I can
press CTRLSHIFT# and it sets a bookmark at that point and file. When I
want to recall it I just press CTRL+# and the cursor jumps to that
location. The # is off cource any number.

As an added feature it would be nice if a icon was added in the left
margin of the editor which also shows the numeral needed to recall the
bookmark.

It would also be nice to be able to drop named bookmarks using a similar
method except that when you set a bookmark it asks you for a name and
when you recall it you get a dropdown of the available named bookmarks
(The numeric ones should preferable show up there too).

Thanks for the feedback! Can any ReSharper developers elaborate on these
suggestions?

Not sure by your question if you already know this, but there is
a shoddy implementation of bookmarking already in VS.NET,
go to Edit->Bookmarks. It doesn't support bookmarks across multiple
files though, you'd have to use the Task List to do that, I think.

Of course, your suggestion would be lightyears more useful =)

Yes, of course cross-file bookmarks will be supported in the IDE.
For exampl, in our Java IDE - IntelliJ IDEA, the approach to the support
of bookmarks is very similar to the one described by you.
