Dear ABAP community,
this blog informs you where to find and how to use the new Tips & Tricks documentation for ABAP core development in ABAP Development Tools (ADT) that is SAP’s standard Eclipse-based IDE for ABAP development.
Did you as an ADT expert ever ask yourself what are the little tricks to achieve your ABAP goals easier when developing with SAP’s standard IDE? Here comes the solution! Take a look on our new Tips & Tricks documentation.
This content provides condensed information about useful ADT features which can be easily accessed through shortcuts, context menu, menu bar, and so on. It is structured in a tabular way that supports you when skimming through the text. Screenshots provide visual guidance, condensed texts, and links directly refer you to additional help content or the relevant UI in ADT. Isn’t cool?

Note that this content will be continuously enriched with new topics. If you have any proposals, please leave a comment on this page. Thank you for your hint.
Enjoy reading and finding out more about ADT!
Would it be possible to access it directly from ADT via menu Help -> Tips and Tricks?
thank you for your question.
Yes, we have already discussed this possibility internally. In this case, we need to adapt the Eclipse standard.
thanks for the clarification.
You are welcome, Peter.
My biggest tip is to use FAQ for SE80 experts.
thank you for your comment.
The FAQs for SE80 is intended to ABAP developers who worked with the SE80 in the past and who to start now working with ADT.
SAP GUI (that provides SE80) is not supported in the context of ABAP environment (a. k. a. Steampunk). So, you cannot use SAP GUI and SE80 in Steampunk.
we continuously work on such content. There is a huge bunch on information which is relevant. I kindly ask for your understanding that it takes time to build this kind of information.
Do you have any proposals what is missing and important for you?
