You could do what I do in plain text editors when editing software
source files. I insert a string of "at" signs: "@@@@" where I want a
"tag". I then can do a search for "@@@@" and go to where I want.
Multiple numbers of "at" signs or different strings can allow multiple
"tags" to search for. This is not the single-key function you would
prefer, but it does work and is not very complex.
I maintain documents larger than 60 pages and I generally use the
vertical scroll bar while looking at paragraph numbers or the page
number in the bottom status bar zooming by. I may have to scroll back
and forth a bit to home in to the area I want, but this process is
reasonably fast to me.
You probably already know that LO will open a file and place the cursor
where it last was when the file was saved.
Hope this helps.

I believe this and/or similar questions have been asked before:
But this does not work.
I do have my personal data entered under Tools and yet the software
ALWAYS opens the document at the top.
Once I am working in the document, there is the "Navigator", but despite
of having all sorts of items/functions,
there is NONE, that would bring me back to the last position the cursor
was, when I was last editing the document.
Right now I am working on a 60-page document and it is really a nuisance
having to scroll (one way or other) through
dozens of pages to get back to that last editing position, once I left
it for whatever reasons.
In the past I used WordPerfect (not any more). This had a very
convenient function called "quick mark".
Every time you save the document (Ctrl+S), the software automatically
enters a mark and you can jump to that position
from whereever you are with a keyboard shortcut.
Although under Tools -> Customize -> Keyboard -> Navigate
there are millions of things you can choose to go to, but nowhere
something like "last (edit) position".
You CAN insert a bookmark and then jump to that bookmark, but to my mind
this is a rather clumsy way of
achieving what was so elegant in Wordperfect.
Is there a trick to it?
Something that would make this action quick and easy (preferrably
