Description
If the compiler reports more than one error, and I've fixed the first and want to jump to the source location of the next error, I have two choices: (a) use the mouse to go to the Messages window, scroll down if necessary, and double-click the next item in the list; or (b) recompile.

To jump to the source location of a hint or warning, I don't even have two choices; I have to use the mouse each time, including the first one.

It would be a big help if Delphi added a keystroke to jump to the next compiler message (error, warning, or hint). Basically, move the selection to the next line in the "Messages" window, and then pretend to double-click that line, leaving the focus in the code editor window on the appropriate line of code.

This feature already exists and has for several versions.

ALT + F8 - Go to next error (item in message window)
ALT + F7 - Go to previous error (item in message window)
