Bookmarks in VFP 9.0

I use Bookmarks to toggle back and forth between sections of a prg file.

It works fine except on one file. On this particular file, it goes to each to bookmark than to the end and no longer responds to the F2 key.

On all other files it wraps around and continues cycling through.

This problem file is much larger than the others.  121k in size and has about 75 functions/procedures.

Is there perhaps a size limitation?

I have a problem with a large prg file that when I do a few PageUps when I am at the bottom of it it will go way to the beginning.

I tried some modifications and size does not appear to be the issue.

I did discover something interesting.

If I saved the file under a new name, thing worked fine. When I changed it back, the problem reappeared.

FoxPro isn't 100% perfect... This could be a problem in resource file and you may try to fix it by creating empty resource file:

SET RESOURCE TO  d:\path\newrsrc

and now try to modify your PRG.

If empty resource does not help then you may try to set different properties of editing window for this particular PRG file (word wrapping, line number displaying etc.)

Tried all your ideas. No luck.

I changed the name and references to the file, and stopped worrying about it.
