Is there any way to put a marker in the source so that one can come back to it later? I have a long article and would like to edit it at some places and finding those places is time-consuming. I am using TeXnicCenter 2 alpha3.

(As similar question has been posted on LaTeX-Community.org)

Please include all information relevant for your question here in this site. What do you mean with "mark"? – doncherry Jun 8 '12 at 8:28
I mean tagging. I need to make some changes at certain places later in the text, @doncherry – Abhimanyu Arora Jun 8 '12 at 8:29
As an alternative to using bookmarks, have you considered splitting up the article into several files? – dgs Jun 8 '12 at 11:15

The TeXnicCenter Help mentions:

Create or delete a bookmark: Ctrl+F2
Go to next bookmark: F2


Create or delete a bookmark: Click on the left-most margin.

I don't think these will remain if you close and re-open the document, but I haven't tested it.

TC 2 alpha 4 has a Bookmark pane (View/Tool Windows/Bookmarks) which shows all of them. Bookmarks can also be set by clicking the narrow gray bar/area left of the code, leaving a blue rectangle to indicate their position. Bookmarks do persist when a project is closed/reopened. – dgs Jun 8 '12 at 11:12
