EGuide 5.1 - Keyboard shortcut for jumping to Do/End block in editor.

Hi there,

In the list of keyboard shortcuts, and also in this article http://blogs.sas.com/content/sasdummy/2013/10/29/five-keyboard-shortcuts/, it is advised that the keyboard shortcut ALT + [ or ALT + ] will take you to the end of the scope in the Do/End block.

I interpret this to mean that, like the CTRL + [ shortcut for parenthesis, it will allow me to jump between the opening and closing Do/End statements.

I'm having some trouble with this, in that when I am within the Do/End block, and use either one, I am taken to the opening Do statement.

Is there any way to take me to the 'End' statement instead?

I'm trying to navigate through some legacy code with multiple nested Do/End statements and this would be really helpful.

Thank you for your help.

Don't forget the ability to format your code!  Use Ctrl+I or right-click, Format Code.  It can turn code that looks like this:
