0:00 We've seen a bunch of ways to navigate around, I go into definition, doing the search anywhere,
0:06 all those kinds of things. But let me show you another way to find areas you may have marked as interesting.
0:12 So let's go down here and say I'm interested in things to do with downloading stuff
0:17 So maybe this service file that we're going to download some things here. I can go over here, click on add to favorites.
0:25 And let's just say call this network. Okay, so where else might be calling? Get requests, requests, not good. This is one over here in the performance.
0:38 So maybe this one we also want to add to our network. Look again, this one also relevant. Okay, so we've added three things to our favorites.
0:51 Where does that go down here? So this favorites window actually brings together a handful of things that you might have already
0:59 done, suppose. And here you've already got like a break point here and a breakpoint there and then a break point.
1:06 Of course you can find those while you're debugging. But what if you just want to say oh yeah, I wanted to see that part where I had a break point.
1:13 Well down here we've got things like the favorites, we just added. These are the files were interested in.
1:18 These are the breakpoints we had we can also create what are called bookmarks. Let's go back here. There. We are kind of like a break point,
1:27 we want to have a place right here to remember but it has really nothing to do with the debugging. So we can kind of an right click and add
1:34 a bookmark at a bookmark down here. A pneumonic bookmark. Yes, but we can get back to, Yeah. All right. If we expand this out,
1:49 you can see we've got a little Pneumonic bookmark and these we can jump around.
1:53 So this is sort of a catch all for either files or locations and files that I want to remember to get back to you. Maybe I've got a new project.
2:02 I'm working on a feature and I'm like, there's a ton of files here, but these are the three locations.
2:06 I really need to just jump to using the whole thing up there. You might use one of these sections down here at the bottom.
