PowerShell ISE Tip - Navigate between curly brackets

While playing with PowerShell ISE today, I just found out about this little nice trick to navigate between brackets !!! I did not know about this! Pretty cool stuff ! :-)



By positioning your cursor on one of the brackets, you can navigate to its opening/closing one by pressing CTRL +  ]


Update: Looks like you can actually do the same thing with SAPIEN PowerShell Studio 2012

Update#2: The matching actually works for anything the ISE recognizes as a matched pair, for example, () and [] in addition to {}. Unfortunately matching doesn't seem to work inside herestrings and other comments. (Thanks Greg Wojan)
