For last weeks, I am forcing myself to develop all things in ABAP using Eclipse IDE. At the beginning, it was really hard to switch from standard SAP environment “SE80” to Eclipse, but I decide to do all possible tasks in new IDEAfter few days, few developments, few debugging sessions, I realised that Eclipse is future of ABAP development.

Eclipse has a lot of useful tricks, views, shortcuts that can help You raise up Your productivity and make programming much simpler. I want to share with You, “ABAP in Eclipse Cheat Sheet Shortcuts”. I prepared it on my own, and I am using it a lot during my everyday work.

I hope it will help You to switch from SE80 to Eclipse. If yes, please let me know about it!

    Hello Michal,

    nice job, it can be printed till one learns it. Just one question to Ctrl+D. Instead of duplicate, it deletes a line in my ADT. To duplicate a line in an ABAP Class, I need to press Ctrl+Alt+Up. Should I set something in preferences, so that the Ctrl+D like in SE80, will duplicate a line ?
    Thank you

      You are right the Ctrl+D is the Eclipse default one and will definitely delete the line, same with Ctrl+Alt+Up and Ctrl+Alt+Down to duplicate a line.

    Great job, Michal! Thanks for revealing them – I believe that it will help many people to make their way from Eclipse beginners to power users!

    Very nice. Thanks for your work!

    Can you please insert an Version ID/Number/Date (or similar) so that we can recognize changes faster?

      I created handy cheat sheet which is easy to print and wanted to share that with the community. There are much more blog posts about shortcuts in Eclipse.
