Bookmark Storage

Bookmarks are saved in a special file named booksmarks.xml, so they are preserved from session to ses­sion. Each project has its own bookmarks.xml file located in the project data directory. Each bookmark is saved as a line offset relative to a symbol declaration, such as a function. This helps to maintain the book­marks if the original file is edited outside of Source Insight.

Bookmarks are maintained as you edit your files. For example, if you set a mark on a particular line, and then insert lines before that one, the mark will still be on the original line of text, even though the actual line num­ber may have changed. If the line that the mark is set at is deleted, then the mark is deleted also.
