Description Petr Dvorak 2008-11-11 12:47:30 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200811110201)
Java: 1.6.0_10-rc; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b13
System: Linux version 2.6.24-19-generic running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

I don't really know if this is a defect, I was just a bit surprised by the behavior...

1. Open Tools>Options>Keymap
2. Filter results by shortcut "Ctrl+Shift+K"
-> See the results... is this as designed? (For example KP_UP can be pressed on numeric keyboard...)
Comment 1 Miloslav Metelka 2008-11-18 14:56:33 UTC
It is as designed. Those are keypad shortcuts. IMHO it would be non-systematic to hide them.
Comment 2 Petr Dvorak 2008-11-18 15:03:13 UTC
OK, then I will reopen this issue as an enhancement:

I would like to see and exact match(es) in bold font and placed at the top of results. In above mentioned search,
Ctrl+Shift+K is in the bottom - it is the very last result in spite of the fact it is the only result exactly matching
the search criteria.
Comment 3 Petr Dvorak 2008-11-18 15:04:57 UTC
Ctrl+F is maybe a little better example...
Comment 4 Max Sauer 2008-11-18 15:06:44 UTC
Yes, the bolding is planned and already discussed with out UI guy..
Comment 5 Petr Dvorak 2008-11-18 15:35:36 UTC
Maybe one more minor part of this enhancement - can it be done in such a way that strings are "matched from '+'
character"? Try to place "F" in the textfield - you will get many rather useless results, such as "ALT+LEFT". This is
most likely not what you were looking for.
Comment 6 Max Sauer 2008-11-18 15:53:12 UTC
The logic has to be more complicated (what about a user which searches for Ctrl+* shortcuts?), but it can be certainly improved. Thanks for the
