I know that we can favorite / bookmark a Question which is very useful for me as I can go back to that quickly from my profile.

But is it possible to Favorite an Answer the same way ? If a question has multiple answers, its not always the accepted answer is the best one, so if i want to pick one i like for future reference, I can mark that as my favorite answer.

is it possible now ? I couldn't find anything in the FAQ / help centre around this. if its not currently possible, can this be added as a feature request somehow ?

It is not possible to do that. It has been asked for on meta.stackexchage.com:

Is there any way to favorite/bookmark an answer?

There are a couple of suggestions in the answers (paraphrasing):

  • Favorite the question and remember which answer is the one you like, which would almost always be the one with the most votes.

  • Bookmark the link to the answer (e.g., this). You can get the link to bookmark by clicking the share short permalink.

    Very helpful Peter & something I'll be able to use as well! Took me a couple of minutes to figure out that the share button was the source of the link attribute to the answer.
