An IntelliJ plugin for quickly jumping to any visible character in the active document.
Inspired by and similar to https://github.com/johnlindquist/AceJump, but with a stronger focus on making jumping to a specific character/position as easy and fast as possible.
Should work in all editors based on the Intellij platform. Install through the standard jetbrains plugin repo by searching for CharJump, or by unzipping a distribution into your plugins folder, e.g ~/.IntelliJIdea2016.2/config/plugins/.
Activate with Alt+Comma (configurable) and enter the character for the position you wish to jump to.
A single-character label will then be shown for each matching position in the document.
Positions close to the current caret position can be reached by a single character, while a two (or in extreme cases three) characters are needed for positions further away when there are many matching positions.
After entering a target character, the jump can be aborted by pressing Space.
The highlight color for the jump targets can be configured from settings -> tools -> CharJump.
