Many full-size keyboards provide a “number pad” on the right side.

Locating to a marker, using the number pad

To locate to a marker, click the “.” (period), then type the number of the marker ( for example, “12” ) and then press “.” again. This will locate to the designated location marker (“12”, in this case). Markers are designated by their location on the timeline, not by their creation time or their name. So when locating with the number pad, jumping to “3” will always be later on the timeline than “2”, regardless of what the markers are named.
