I like to have some fun at work. But not everyone can always follow that.

I agree that this would be a handy feature but I personally wouldn't
As I said to you earlier: Please have a look at the bookmark feature
first. When I have the "joy" to work with very large methods – this is
something that happens when speed is important and one works with
GoSub/Return to simulate functions inside functions but without leaving
the scope, I use bookmarks.
Usually I have two or three bookmarks set inside the method with Ctrl-B
at the places I'm currently working on and then jump with
Alt-Pgup/Pgdown from one to the other.
Did you try it?
Did you also try Ctrl-Alt-Enter and Ctrl-Enter?
