In Tip 1.16, you learned more than you ever wanted to know about go-back markers. For this tip, you’ll learn how insertion points are slightly different. They are similar to the go-back markers, but they are applied anywhere you click the mouse or jump the cursor to. The go-back marker “11 or more lines” rule doesn’t apply.

The option, which is shown in the next illustration, can be found at Tools–Options–Text Editor–General.

To give it a try, just click somewhere, then click somewhere else (or use Find or a Go To Line if you’re using the keyboard), and then click Undo. You’ll move back to that previous location.

Happy Programming! =)
