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].
Reasons:
- 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.
