I have this problem with one particular notebook (actually a .m file, 
but I edit it in Mathematica) which is 7600 lines long!

You can, of course, do amazing custom things if you are prepared to 
program the system a bit. I extend my Mathematica menu (see the 
installation file MenuSetup.tr) with extra items - accessible via the 
alt key.

Using this scheme, I can add bookmarks of the form (*\[Lightbulb].....*) 
and quickly return to these locations.

BTW, do backup your MenuSetup.tr file before you try modifying it, 
because if you end up with a syntax error in it, Mathematica will simply 
not start!
