How to skip forward a number of chunks

Postby RiaanP » Tue Mar 08, 2016 4:24 am

File is a mainframe FB file. After setting Flat Text mode and Set wrap length to 80. The chunk size is set to 2mb
Last line is 26215

How do I quickly skip forward to line 150000 without loading the next chunk a number of times? I know the data I want is in chunk 6 on about line 150000. How do I get there quickly?

The only way to skip to an *exact* line number is to use the Goto command (Ctrl+G) and enter the line number you want to skip to.

I know the data I want is in chunk 6 on about line 150000.

You can quickly skip to a chunk by specifying a chunk number in the Goto command. However, if you do this, the line numbering will start from the top of the chunk instead of the top of the file.
