1) Tools > Options > Codetools: "Jump directly to message body".
This should change what jump to implementation does. I never used it, but afaik that is how it works

going back: alt-h (not sure maybe ctrl-h) in either case you can assign it to other keys, maybe ALT- cursor-left

Lazarus doesn't pop up. But "Find references" gives you this list, in a separate window
It works for any identifier, functions , variables, classes....

Alt-h should work after jumping to any of them

4) And "Lock" it.
this will mean if you navigate around in the unit (search results, jump to other declaration/implementation....) then it will use the unlocked window.

There are some options in the Tools>Option > Editor > Pages and Windows
that determine which window to use as target.

1. Thank you.  :)
I have now:
ALT-UP: Find references
ALT-DOWN: jump to implementation
ALT Right: Go Forward

2. Found it (see above) - works perfect.

I just started with FPC/Lazarus, coming from VB.Net.

Then you may interested to learn some useful shortcuts:

And here are some useful things to do on the IDE:

- Enable Single Button in Taskbar
Lazarus main menu > Tools > Options > Environment > Window > Show single button in Taskbar

- Show Project Inspector
Lazarus main menu > Project > Project Inspector

- Show Code Explorer
Lazarus main menu > Source > Code Explorer

- Create and Manage Your Desktop
Lazarus main menu > Tools > Desktop

- Enable Anchor Docking
Lazarus main menu > Package > Install/Uninstall Packages > on the right panel, choose "anchordockingdsgn 0.5" > Install Selection > Save and rebuild IDE > Continue > wait some minutes, then the IDE will be restarted

And here has a list of tutorials with wide range of topics:

Also this maybe useful for you:

Thanks for the release. It seems to work great using Wine 1.8.7. on Linux.  :)
You can also use the native Linux version on Linux.

Yes, but although Linux is my OS I write programs mostly for Windows. I used to use the Linux native version and cross-compiled to Windows but the results weren't that good as a consequence  of using different widgets sets. The application looked great on GTK but after cross-compiling the graphics on the windows exe were often misaligned, widgets were too big, etc. Using the Windows version solves those problems because what I see is what I get.
