The bookmark feature helps you navigate through VLISP text editor windows by letting you mark up to 32 positions (bookmarks) in each window. Once 32 bookmarks are set, adding a new bookmark results in the oldest bookmark being removed.
Each text editor window maintains its own set of bookmarks, and the bookmark navigation tools let you walk through the marks within each window independently of the other windows. A set of bookmarks within a window is known as a bookmark ring. You can step either forward or backward through the ring, and eventually return to the starting point.
Whenever you step to a bookmark, VLISP automatically places a marker at the location you are stepping from. In effect, the marker for the place you are jumping to is moved to the place you jumped from. This makes it easy to return to your original location just by stepping back in the opposite direction, or by cycling through all the bookmarks until you get back to the starting point.

In addition to jumping between bookmarks, you can also jump and select the text between two bookmarks.
Removing a bookmark is similar to setting a bookmark.
The Toggle Bookmark command works as an on/off switch. If you issue the command when a bookmark is set, Toggle Bookmark turns it off. Issue the same command when there is no bookmark set, and Toggle Bookmark inserts a bookmark.
