2. Navigating through many documents

Navigating through a large list of documents can be difficult. But if you right-click the document notebook tabs, you get a list of all opened documents.

Navigation between documents can also be done using the Go menu, or its shortcuts.

The shortcuts are the following:

The GoGoto Line (Ctrl-L) offers an interesting feature.

If there is some number in the document, you may select it, then click the From selection label in the Goto line dialog. Bluefish will fill in the Line number field with that number and go directly to it. The same feature is available from the GoGoto Selection.

Check the Keep dialog box to keep the dialog open, when you plan to access several parts of the document by line numbers.
