    Excellent addition! Simplifies tracking what you've changed and what you've committed in such an elegantly simple fashion. Get it if you don't have it.

    This is the greatest plugin ever, people try to get me to use sublime but i cant live without this plugin, i was wondering if you were going to update it more. Its great i just feel it can be improved like jumping to last caret location seems to not record every last location.

    Works great with Notepad++ 6.1.8. Plenty of options to mark left margin, highlight line, change colors, etc. "Save record when app exit" doesn't seem to work as I would expect (saving highlighting and locations between sessions), maybe a permissions issue, or not implemented yet?

    UPDATE Jan 2016. This plugin appears to be responsible for Notepad++ crashing when doing certain regex search & replaces. The crashes stopped after uninstalling this plugin. See Github issue 240. Just installed this and looking good. I couldn't figure out the default next/previous keyboard shortcuts. It looks like it's Ctrl - (minus) and Ctrl Shift (minus). The problem I'm finding is that Ctrl (minus) and Ctrl (plus) reduce/enlarge the font size in Notepad. Fortunately, you can remap LocationNav's keyboard shortcuts under Settings -> Shortcut Mapper, then go to the Plugin Commands tab. At least on mine, the first two options are the ones I needed ... "Previous Location" and "Next Location". I changed previous to Alt-Left and next to Alt-Right which are intuitive to me. Looking forward to this plugin.
