Jump Backwards to Last Places

Post by brody-xr3 » Mon Feb 08, 2021 4:05 pm

Hi,

Is there any keyboard shortcut that will take me to through the last places my cursor was? Such that I could hit:

ctrl-alt-q

and jump

page 1

page 787

page 119

page 23

page 6

and so forth...

So, sort of a running diary of where I'd been in the document, and a way to retrace those steps.

Sincerely,

OT

Do you mean the page navigation buttons for "Previous View" and "Next View" like shown here below ?

These should work with ALT + Cursor LEFT and ALT + Cursor RIGHT.

Best regards.

Hi Brody,

we have something sort of like this, "Next View" and "Previuous View", though to be honest I am not 100% sure how it sets the points it "remembers"

does that help?

PDF-XChange Editor seems to record the visited points once every second, which makes sense when moving through a document by scrolling, where you don't want every visited centimeter of the document recorded as a separate point in your view history.

It has however been discussed, and I believe decided, that the one second delay will be removed for cases where you have moved around in the document by clicking on things (like thumbnails, bookmarks or links):

https://forum.tracker-software.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=35094#:~:text=please%20fix%20this%20by%20removing%20the%201%20second%20timeout%20delay%20when%20navigating%20by%20clicking%20on%20things%20like%20links%20or%20bookmarks

Best regards

Subtle and NEAT engineering Paul!
