Default Move to Previous Location

Hi,

Curser was in page1 of a document. I scrolled to page 5 and selected an item
in page 5. Now I want to go to previous location.

Is there a shortcut for doing this?

Thanks!

GoBack (Shift+F5). GoBack will skip back to the previous 5 edit points.

Shft+F5 will toggle to the last 3 places of edit.
It also works after shutdown and reopen, abet only to the last place of an
edit.
I belive this function was dropped from 2007 but retruned in 2010.
Hope this helps

Default Move to Previous Location

In Word 2007, you can use a macro to return to a specific location in a
document (after it has been closed and reopened). MVP Graham Mayor has given
this solution in a different thread:


********************
You can work around it easily enough with a couple of macros in the normal
template e.g.

Sub OpenAt()
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add Range:=Selection.Range, Name:="OpenAt"
End Sub

Added to a keyboard shortcut or to a button on the QAT, when run it will
insert a bookmark at the cursor position called OpenAt. Or you could
incorporate the command line in a macro to intercept the Save and Save as
functions to mark the last cursor position before saving the document.

The following macro will check for that bookmark and select it if present
when a document is opened.

Sub AutoOpen()
If ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Exists("OpenAt") = True Then
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("OpenAt").Select
End If
End Sub

As implied in the post Stefan quoted you would need three macros to make it
all work transparently

Sub FileSave()
On Error Resume Next
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add Range:=Selection.Range, name:="OpenAt"
ActiveDocument.Save
End Sub

Sub FileSaveAs()
On Error Resume Next
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add Range:=Selection.Range, name:="OpenAt"
Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs).Show
End Sub

Sub AutoOpen()
If ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Exists("OpenAt") = True Then
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("OpenAt").Select
End If
End Sub

The documents will thus always open at the place the cursor was when the
document was saved.

Well, the original question is covered by using the Shift+F5 shortcut, as
suggested by Terry and Dean. Your code deals with the case of going back to
the last edit point in a document that was closed and then reopened, doesn't
it? Maybe I'm missing something?

Agreed that Shift+F5 is simpler while the document remains open. The macros
in my original reply were aimed at the situation where the document has been
closed, where Shift+F5 no longer works in Word 2007. The subset you quoted
from an earlier post allows a bookmark to be set manually and the autoopen
macro, whether run on opening a document or manually from a toolbar button
will return to that bookmarked location. Obviously I should not have
responded before having my morning cup of tea and reading the whole thread
