Well the problem is that I sometimes have a few bookmarks. They don't
always start at 1.  eg: 2, 4, 6  (I use Programmer Dvorak keyboard
layout, and the numbers are not in sequence like Qwerty).   Now if I
mistakenly press Ctrl+Shift+1, it might jump to a totally unrelated
unit - compared to what I am working with.  This is very annoying - I
already have to many units open at once.  :-)

Thanks Marc, I'll search the mailing list, but yes, there is a big
benefit for toggling the bookmarks. There is also a big benefit in not
having persistent bookmarks.  Could somebody with the right knowledge
of Lazarus IDE make these user selectable options?   I would do it
myself if I could, but I find it hard enough just to add IDE shortcuts
to add-on I create - so I have no clue where to even start looking for
Lazarus IDE keyboard behaviour code.
