 2   A <i class="firstterm">marker</i> is a pointer to a specific location within
 3   a buffer, which may or may not have a single-character <i class="firstterm">shortcut</i> associated with it.
 4   Markers are persistent; they are saved to
 5   <tt class="filename">.<i class="replaceable"><tt>filename</tt></i>.marks</tt>, where
 6   <tt class="filename"><i class="replaceable"><tt>filename</tt></i></tt> is the name of the
 7   buffer. (The dot prefix
 8   makes the markers file hidden on Unix systems.) Marker
 9   saving can be
10   disabled in the <span><b class="guibutton">General</b></span> pane of the
11   <span><b class="guimenu">Utilities</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Global Options</b></span>
12   dialog box; see <a href="global-opts.html#general-pane" title="The General Pane">the section called &#8220;The General Pane&#8221;</a>.
13  </p><p>
14   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Add/Remove Marker</b></span>
15   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+e C+m</tt>) adds a
16   marker without a shortcut pointing to the current line. If a marker is
17   already set on the current line, the marker is removed instead.
18   If text is selected,
19   markers are added to the first and last line of each selection.
20  </p><p>
21   Markers are listed in the <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span> menu; selecting a marker
22   from this menu will move the caret to its location.
23  </p><p>
24   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Go to Previous
25   Marker</b></span>
26   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+e C+COMMA</tt>) goes
27   to the marker immediately before the caret position.
28  </p><p>
29   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Go to Next Marker</b></span>
30   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+e C+PERIOD</tt>)
31   goes to the marker immediately after the caret position.
32  </p><p>
33   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Remove All Markers</b></span>
34   removes all markers set in the current buffer.
35  </p><p>Markers with shortcuts allow for quicker keyboard-based navigation.
36   The following commands all prompt for a single-character shortcut when
37   invoked. Pressing <tt class="keycap">ESCAPE</tt>
38   instead of specifying a shortcut will cancel the operation.
39  </p><p>
40   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Add Marker With
41   Shortcut</b></span>
42   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+t <i class="replaceable"><tt>key</tt></i></tt>) adds a marker with the
43   specified shortcut. If marker with that shortcut
44   already exists, it will remain in the buffer but lose its shortcut.
45  </p><p>
46   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Go to Marker</b></span>
47   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+y <i class="replaceable"><tt>key</tt></i></tt>) moves the caret to
48   the location of the marker with the specified shortcut.
49  </p><p>
50   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Select to Marker</b></span>
51   (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+u <i class="replaceable"><tt>key</tt></i></tt>) creates a selection from
52   the caret location to the marker with the specified shortcut.
53  </p><p>
54   <span><b class="guimenu">Markers</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Swap Caret and
55   Marker</b></span> (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+k <i class="replaceable"><tt>key</tt></i></tt>)
56   moves the caret to the location of the marker with the specified shortcut,
57   and moves the marker to the former caret position. Invoke
58   this command multiple times to flip between two locations in the buffer.
59  </p><p>
60   Lines which contain markers are indicated in the gutter with a highlight.
61   Moving the mouse over the highlight displays a tool tip showing the marker's
62   shortcut, if it has one. See <a href="overview.html" title="Interface Overview">the section called &#8220;Interface Overview&#8221;</a> for information
63   about the gutter.
