It would be great if there was an option to navigate easily from an overriding method in a child class to the respective overridden method in a parent class. (It should jump to the closest parent which declares this method.)

Simple example:

abstract class Gradpa {
    virtual void foo() = 0;
    virtual void bar() {
        // ...
    }
};

class Parent : public Gradpa {
    virtual void foo() override {
        // Navigate from here to the Gradpa::foo()
    }
};

class Child : public Parent {
    virtual void foo() override {
        // Navigate from here to the Parent::foo()
    }
    virtual void bar() override {
        // Navigate from here to the Grandpa::bar()
    }
};

If you run Find References on these functions, so long as you have turned On "Inherited and overridden references" in the Find References Results context menu, you can quickly and easily see the parent class methods, and jump to them.

Yes, Find References is a great function, but not so straightforward for this use case. I have to search for declarations in results and do more research to find out which are actually overriding instances, which are overridden and which is the one overridden method from the closest parent.

A good point, Find References is not going to work as well as I had hoped here.

I have emailed you about this.

Go to Related is under active development, but we did demo it to current users at the Microsoft Build conference last week.

Build 2031 adds the command VAssistX.GotoRelated to the list of bindable commands at Tools | Options | Environment | Keyboard.
Bind it for example to alt+shift+g or ctrl+shift+g, in the Text Editor scope.

As I noted, it is under active development but we anticipate a formal debut in our next release or two.

Goto Related is officially released in build 2036. It is bound to alt+shift+g.
