How to use AdT solely with a keyboard => navigation in eclipse
Coding AdT is great, and not having to touch a mouse also is.
So I’ll list some cool shortcuts I use.
But not knowing how to do something (with the keyboard), makes me feel bad, powerless, and frustrated.
So I’ll also list some things I don’t know yet, but (hopefully) will find out!
Highly useful AdT shortcuts
ctrl+shift+n = new object
ctrl+shift+a = open object
F3 = open definition
shift+F3 = activate
ctrl+shift+F3 = activate all inactive
shift+f1 = pretty printer
alt+shift+w = open with
+ arrow down + enter = project explorer -> get the focus to project explorer, e.g. to navigate through source-hierarchy
Ctrl+Shift+L => show all shortcuts “That’s where I hope to find answers to the following!)
What I dearly miss (not know yet)
[Edit: meanwhile, some of them are known, see edit at the end of this blog!)]
How do I:
* Set the focus back to the editing area, when I lost it somehow
* Navigate to problems-view tab ” -> bind ctrl+P to it;
* and set focus on the error-line, so I can unfold it “-> just use arrows then
* How do I move through tabs?
* 1 by 1 “-> ctrl+tab
* direct, e.g. 1st, 2nd, last (=n);
if possible also: n-1, n-2, n-m.
This blog is part of a learning-strategy:
(or is it a #LearHack?! ;-))
If I don’t know something, I write it down. (+publish, in this case).
Then I keep on trying to find out.
If I do find out I’ll add answers to my question.
Here’s the answers we (=the SAP Community) have found so far:
* Set the focus back to the editing area, when I lost it somehow “-> ctrl+Q (last edit location)
* Navigate to problems-view tab ” -> map to Ctrl+P, see comment from Sandra Rossi
* and set focus on the error-line, so I can unfold it -> just use arrow-down then
* move through tabs: 1 by 1 “-> Ctrl + PageDown / PageUp
