I am editing a longish manuscript and it's not something I can work on every day, so I tend to lose track of where I last was.

What do people do to remember where they were last editing? My immediate thought is to use a project bookmark, but how do I differentiate that from other project bookmarks?

I guess what I would ideally want to do is quickly add my last edited position, with a date stamp.

As a suggestion, if no one else comes up with a solution, why not add an inline annotation with an un-ambiguous text like #here!!—or whatever you fancy—that you can search for? Then delete it as you continue and re-instate it when you finish each session at the new point?

I guess that's what I'll do, using an Alfred snippet that automatically puts in the text plus date and time.
