How to use Bookmarks in ABAP in Eclipse

I often hear with ABAP in Eclipse it is only possible to declare whole packages as my favorite objects and not single objects as in SE80.

This is not true. With Eclipse you have the possibility to define Bookmarks within your source code artifacts and use them to easily navigate to these objects. Here you see how this works in eclipse:

  1. You define the bookmarks in the ABAP sourcecode editor (Classses, Interfaces, Reports, Function Modules, Includes). Just right-click on the small column on the left side of the editor and open the context menu. In the context menu you find the entry ‘Add Bookmark…’


  2. After choosing this entry you can enter a name for the bookmark
  3. The editor detects the cursor position and stores the bookmark as part of your client settings
  4. The already existing bookmarks are listed in the so called Bookmarks view that you can open via the menu Window->Show View->Other


  5. You open an editor just by double-clicking on an item in the list of bookmarks in the view. The editor opens at the right cursor position.


    Deleting the bookmarks can be done in the bookmarks view or in the editor via choosing the “Remove Bookmark…” action in the context menu.
