    Hi,

    I would like to use bookmarks, but …
    the bookmarks (including coloring) will be removed, namely after

    1. copying a file to another folder (drive does not matter)
    2. renaming a file

    For this reason I am currently using –> outlines as an alternative.

    Example:
    I get a program update with a HISTORY.TXT and create bookmarks in this file.
    The next update overwrites the file HISTORY.TXT (including bookmarks).

    I would like to create a backup of HISTORY.TXT with bookmarks,
    but this is currently not possible without losing the bookmarks.

    Could you please make a change here?

    Regards,
    Karl

    Hello,

    Is the “Save Cursor Position and Bookmarks” option in the History page of the Customize dialog box set?

    1. I am not sure if I understand your question. Copy a file from which folder to which folder? Can you please write a simple step-by-step to reproduce the issue?

    2. If the name of a file was renamed outside of EmEditor, EmEditor will not be able to see the changes.

    Hello,
    thank you for your quick reply.

    Here are my settings:

    ☑ Save Cursor Position and Bookmarks
    Number of Days to Save: 3000
    ☑ Never Clear Bookmarks

    2. If the name of a file was renamed outside of EmEditor, EmEditor will not be able to see the changes.

    Thank you for that information, I didn’t know that.

    1. I am not sure if I understand your question. Copy a file from which folder to which folder?
    Can you please write a simple step-by-step to reproduce the issue?

    Here is a simple example, created with the 64 bit installed version:

    1. create the file Bookmarks.txt in D:\Data
    2. enter a few lines, e.g. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and create a bookmark in every second line
    3. save and close the file
    4. Copy the file D:\Data\Bookmarks.txt to I:\Data\Bookmarks.txt.
    5. when I open the file I:\Data\Bookmarks.txt, the bookmarks no longer exist.

    Currently I only have the possibility to use the function “Save As… F12”,
    to keep the bookmarks.

    Outside of EmEditor the bookmarks are currently lost,
    when I copy, move or rename a file.
    [… … or when opening a text file created with the 64 bit version with the 32 bit version and vice versa …]

    Sorry, I meant
    bookmarks are also lost when opening a text file created with the 64 bit version with the 32 bit version and vice versa.

    @Yutaka,

    Bookmarks are important to some extent.
    But I feel RecentFileList is not a suitable/reliable place to store bookmarks:
    ▲ Not all the items in RecentFileList need bookmarks.
    ▲ The items in RecentFileList could be flushed away when one opens many files at a time. (See also: the 2 in: https://www.emeditor.com/forums/topic/open-save-options/ )
    ▲ A crash could mess up the bookmarks sometimes (due to the changed order).

    Suggestion:
    Save bookmarks separately from RecentFileList.
    If so, I don’t have to keep a very long RecentFileList.
