Markers are navigation waypoints that remember important locations you'll need to move to in the future. Markers can be of the following types:
Soft Marker - is dropped automatically by Code Providers. For instance, if you use the Declare Field With Initializer code provider, a marker will be dropped onto the method parameter for which the field was generated.
Hard Marker - is dropped manually onto the current cursor position.
Selection Marker - is dropped manually onto the current selection.
Invisible Marker - is dropped onto the current reference when you tab to the next reference or use Quick Navigation. This marker is not displayed in the code editor.
Markers provide the following features:
Moves the caret to the topmost marker within the stack, and removes this marker.
Drops a marker at the current cursor position.
Moves the topmost marker within the stack to the current cursor position, and moves the cursor to the previous position of the marker.
Collect Marker and Paste
