    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.
