Description scwells72 2008-04-27 22:00:59 UTC
I posted on nbdev that I'd created a pretty comprehensive keymap for users of IntelliJ IDEA:

I was asked to open an issue so that perhaps it could get incorporated into the base product as an out-of-the-box keymap
option.  This is that issue, and I'll be looking at how to attach the keymap to this issue after initial submission.

Comment 2 scwells72 2008-04-27 22:12:14 UTC
I've attached what I think should be all of the files that comprise the custom keymap.  If for whatever reason these
files are not sufficient, please let me know and I can send you my entire config dir.  Please let me know if there's
anything else I can do to help get this into an upcoming version!

Updated with changes to move line/selection up/down
Comment 4 scwells72 2008-04-28 03:07:01 UTC
Please use the most recent attachment.  I realized that CTRL-SHIFT-UP and CTRL-SHIFT-DOWN weren't mapped to move
selection/line up/down on the keymap that I'd uploaded earlier.
Comment 5 scwells72 2008-05-09 18:05:49 UTC
One additional comment.  Please reassign SHIFT-ESC to "Close Window" to more accurately mimic the IntelliJ IDEA
behavior.  I can upload a replacement keymap if that's preferable.

Updated to include SHIFT-ESC as Close Window
Comment 7 scwells72 2008-05-09 18:09:51 UTC
Never mind.  I attached an updated keymap with SHIFT-ESC properly mapped.  Just use the latest attachment.
Comment 8 maksym 2008-06-18 19:19:07 UTC
Hi. I just started migration from IDEA to NetBeans.
This keymap is very useful. Thank you.

But let me suggest some useful keymaps (from IDEA Keymap dialog box):
# Editor Actions
  - Select Word at Caret (Ctrl+Shift+W)
# Main Menu
  # Edit
    - Undo (Alt+Backspace)
    - Redo (Alt+Shift+Backspace)
  # Window
    - Hide All Windows (Ctrl+Shift+F12)

Also, shortcuts in tooltips in the small toolbar of the 
java source code editor window are not correct 
(bookmarks, ets.).

... to be continued

P.S. IDEA colors and fonts, coding style will be usefull too.
Comment 9 Vitezslav Stejskal 2008-06-19 10:36:11 UTC
Thanks for the patch. I'll add the profile to the IDE.
Comment 10 maksym 2008-06-19 17:14:48 UTC
I implemented Undo (Alt+Backspace) and Paste (Shift+Insert)
using macros. Other actions, those are absent in keymap, 
can be implemented as well.
Comment 11 maksym 2008-06-19 17:48:15 UTC
But how to open recent files list?
Comment 12 scwells72 2008-06-19 19:22:53 UTC
As for a recent files list, NetBeans doesn't have such a feature yet other than in the File menu.  I've actually created
a plug-in with that feature for 6.1+, but I haven't posted it anywhere yet.  It works pretty much like the one in IDEA
as that's what I used as a precedent.  The same plug-in also includes an incomplete implementation of IDEA's CTRL+ALT+B
go to implementation functionality.

Comment 15 rukus 2008-10-09 08:32:59 UTC
What about inluding this patch in netbeans 6.5 out-of-box?
Comment 16 Jan Becicka 2008-10-09 10:13:25 UTC
Too late for 6.5. But should be integrated.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200901070201* on (upload may still be in progress)
