When I run :marks it lists all the marks including the standard vim marks. This is somehow distracting.

Is there a way to list only my marks that I created using m-X for example?

  • :marks a-z should work Oct 8, 2020 at 11:03
  • For me it doesn't work. It just shows 'a' mark and doesn't show 'b' and 'c'. Although they are shown by just :marks Oct 8, 2020 at 11:59
  • I found that :marks a-b will show 'a' and 'b'. :marks a-c will show 'a' and 'c'. :marks a-d will only show 'a'. As far as I read, this should list marks from a to d. If I run :marks abcd it will list 'a', 'b', and 'c' which all I have. So it looks like this is the best solution Oct 8, 2020 at 12:05

You can define a custom command like this, that will only show the lowercase marks a-z:

:com :MyMarks :sil! marks abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

I end up having this in my vimrc

nnoremap <silent> ,m :marks abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz<CR>:normal! `

With with ,m vim lists all my marks and then I only have to type the mark that I want to jump to and hit enter
