    Bookmarks in Word 2010

    I found Ctrl-Shift-F5...that reduces it a bit...

    Is there any shortcut key to place a bookmark in a Word document?

    I don't use multiple bookmarks often. What I do do however is need to mark where I am, and then move around in the document for reference, and then return to the bookmark.

    It's a small thing, but a key-comb to the last set bookmark (perhaps?) Would make things a it easier when working primarily on the keyboard.

    Overkill for your problem but useful to have:
    http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/word_tip_pages/cc_var_bm_doc_prop_tools_addin.htm

    The following key sequence lets you enter a bookmark:
    Alt
    N
    K

    or Alt+N, K

    Ctrl+G is the GoTo command.
    Shift+Tab, B will get you to the bookmarks dialog.

    An alternative feature (which disappears in Word 2013) is the Object Browser.

    You can browse by edits.

    The object browser is in the bottom right corner of the screen. It looks like a degree symbol and is between an up and down arrow at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar. Once you've selected something to browse, you can use the up and down arrows to go back and forth.

    I use these two macros and assign keyboard shortcuts to them. As you can see, they have been with me a while!

    Code:
    Sub SetMarker1()
    '
    ' Macro recorded 11.10.98 by A C Rowland
    '
        With ActiveDocument.Bookmarks
            .Add Range:=Selection.Range, Name:="Marker1"
            .DefaultSorting = wdSortByName
            .ShowHidden = False
        End With
    End Sub
    
    Sub GotoMarker1()
    '
    ' GotoMarker1 Macro
    ' Macro recorded 11.10.98 by A C Rowland
    '
        Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="Marker1"
        Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
        With Selection.Find
            .Text = ""
            .Replacement.Text = ""
            .Forward = True
            .Wrap = wdFindContinue
            .Format = False
            .MatchCase = False
            .MatchWholeWord = False
            .MatchWildcards = False
            .MatchSoundsLike = False
            .MatchAllWordForms = False
        End With
    End Sub

    Thanks. I've assigned the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+B to set the bookmark and Ctrl+Shift+G to go to it.

    No putdown, but seems like a pretty simple solution. Right click on the Quick Access Toolbar then left click on "Customize Quick Access Toolbar." Be sure "All Commands" is selected in the drop down menu at the top of the left column. Scroll down this column until you find "Bookmark" (flag). Add it to the right column which installs this icon in the Quick Access Toolbar. Click OK. Now go back to your Word document, do "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" and drag the flag icon to a convenient location on the bar. Now when you want to add a bookmark, place your cursor at your return location, click on the flag icon, a little window opens, and name your bookmark. If you are using only a "go back to" bookmark, I usually label it "go." Then when you want to return to a previous location just click on the flag icon, the little window opens showing "go," click on "Go To" and you're there. When editing doctoral dissertation chapters I've used 20 or so bookmarks, each with a unique short name such as "ho" (hypothesis), "rq" (research questions), and "sop" (statement of purpose). This is handy and quick. Be creative but not complex with "go to" abbreviations. The Quick Access Toolbar can be your best friend.
