Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to jump to a specific line in the current document.


Choose Edit » Goto Line Number from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Go to Line Number dialog will appear. Initially, the dialog will reflect the line in which the text cursor is currently positioned. Simply enter the line number that you want the cursor to jump to. If the line number is greater than the number of lines in the document the dialog will reappear, ready to type in a valid line number.

After clicking OK, the cursor will jump to the same position in the specified line.


  1. It can be very helpful to enable the display of line numbers. This can be done using the Show line numbers option (and related sub-options), on the Text Editors - Display page of the Preferences dialog.
