How to add bookmark in texmaker? A bookmark in the sense that mark a certain line in a certain latex file, and come back to that line later even you are opening another latex file.

The obvious different with the the question (Texmaker 1 2 3 buttons) is that, using approach in that question, bookmarks does not persist if I close Texmaker and open the same file again.

    Texmaker does highlight % TODO, but these comments are for some reason not listed in the structure view, as they are in TeXstudio, Kile or Latexila. There's a feature request about this here: code.google.com/p/texmaker/issues/… Sep 21 '13 at 16:59
  • Just to clarify, you are after "bookmarks" that are saved with the file, so that if you close it and reopen it later, the bookmarks will still be there? Sep 21 '13 at 19:04
  • @SeanAllred the question aren't really duplicate, as two questions are obviously different.

I sometimes use the search function for this...

You can write a sequence of numbers and letters, e.g. "here2day", in comment at the line you want to find and search for it
