This is not an answer to your question, but there are two facilities 
useful as workarounds: reminders and bookmarks.  Set reminders by 
opening the Navigator and clicking the (paper clip) Set Reminder 
icon.  Set bookmarks at Insert | Bookmark... or again through the 
Navigator.  You can get back to bookmarks and reminders in various 
ways, using the Navigator or the Navigation toolbar (which are 
different things).  It is a good idea to get used to exactly how to 
use these, which is perhaps not well explained in the help 
text.  Note that - once you have configured it - you can use the 
effect of the Navigation toolbar directly from the three buttons at 
the bottom of the vertical scroll bar.  Probably the simplest way to 
return to a bookmark is to right-click in the Page Number field at 
the left of the Status Bar (at the foot of the window) and select the 
appropriate (named) bookmark from the context menu.

I trust this helps.
