[Sticky] Lazarus Pascal - Jump straight to the function implementation in code

I use this all the time, select a procedure and press Alt+Up to jump straight to the implementation code of a procedure or function.

However by default pressing Alt+Up makes the source editor jump to the declaration. I've never found this useful, I'd rather see the code (where the declaration is mostly visible as well anyway).

To enable this feature:

Mac: Go to the menu "Lazarus" - "Settings" - "Codetools" and check the option "Jump directly to method body".
Windows: Go to the menu "Tools" - "Options" - "Codetools" and check the option "Jump directly to method body".

Now try Alt+Up again: it'll jump straight to the implementation code. 😊
