Jumping back/forward button!
« on: July 25, 2010, 01:53:32 pm »
Hi
I need a button which would do nearly the same what the "undo" button does, but it would jump back/forward to the last seen point of the project. (So it could jump back or forward between the viewpoints.) It would work like the "undo", but it shouldn't undo the changes, but it would make possible a better navigation in the files, because it is impossible to bookmark everything.

It is incredibly important, seriously, how many times you could use it. Just think about it. It would help everywhere if it would work automatically and simply (especially in large projects).

// If possible we should make an interface to determine what kind of jumps should it memorize (for example: memorizing the scrolling, the jumpings after the searches or just the jumps in the project's files).

I hope there is a programmer who is able to do this! If something isn't clear just feel free to ask!

Menu -> View -> Jump ->Jump back(forward).
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Menu -> View -> Jump ->Jump back(forward).

You will have to install the BrowseTracker plugin to get those menu items.

Would it be possible for these commands to be bound to the back/forward buttons on a 5 button mouse?

I might look into coding this myself.

Last time I checked there was no crossplatform way to do this :(
