The "default" bookmark methods of Eclipse ask for a name and this is often not very useful. The code here adds bookmarks a la "Borland" and bookmarks a la "JCreator". The code has the following options which can all be bound/rebound with the keys dialog under the "Edit" category:
* Add a numbered bookmark at the cursor: Alt+[digit]. This creates a quick bookmark with the specified number using a "single" keypress. Only one bookmark of the given number can be present in the workspace. Setting the same number bookmark again will clear the earlier instance.
* Goto a numbered bookmark: Alt+Shift+[digit]. Moves to the bookmark as it was set using Alt+[digit].
* Toggle Bookmark: Ctrl+B. This drops an unnamed bookmark at the current location. Pressing Ctrl+B again releases the bookmark at that location again. This is often used with "Goto next bookmark" and "Goto previous bookmark".
* Goto next bookmark in file: Ctrl+N. This locates the next bookmark in the current file and moves there.
* Goto previous bookmark in file: Ctrl+P. This locates the previous bookmark in the current file and moves there.warning: the Ctrl+P binding is a suggestion only; since Ctrl+P is currently assigned you must add your own key binding using Window -> Preferences -> General -> Keys.

I agree with previous comment that about using the two function keys for setting and a single function key for going to bookmark. I can probably manually remap.
I have been using Quickmarks plug-in for a lot of years, but it hasn't worked since Eclipse 4.0. One of the things that I really like about it is that it uses numbers to represent the bookmark instead a single generic icon for every bookmark. When I create a quickmark/bookmark for function key 7, a "7" shows up on the editor.
Thanks for the plug-in, cannot believe Eclipse doesn't have something as basic as this that probably every IDE has. This is one of my most used features.

It would be really nice, if Ctrl-N was not limited to the current file. Is there an easy way to goto the next bookmark, regarless which file it is located in? Likewise: is there a an easy way (like Ctrl-P) to goto the previous bookmark, even if it is located in another file?

As an ex Delphi developer i realy missed this quick bookmark feture. Did you know that Toad for Oracle also supports this?
I only got one thing that can be improved on:
You cannot use this plugin for XML files.

Very nice plugin. Thank you!
One suggestion: In my opinion, setting bookmark should be Alt+Shift+[digit] and go to bookmark Alt+[digit].
- Go to bookmark is most common operation, setting bookmark isn't. Less buttons, more convenience.
- Setting bookmark is destructive operation (you remove previous bookmark with [digit]). The Alt key used here as a confirmation.
- Checking all bookmarks: Pressing Alt and going through 1-9 can be done with one hand. Pressing Alt+Shift and going through 1-9 can't.
