Favorite Netbeans Java Editor Shortcuts
By cwebster on Jan 07, 2006
I have been doing some collaborative development and it is interesting to what and learn how other developers use an IDE. Specifically, what keyboard shortcuts are used. I am the first to admit that I am not the editor keyboard shortcut wizard but there are are few that I find useful and use quite a bit (beyond cut and paste of course): Ctrl-E - delete line Alt-Shift-I - This is a fast import and uses the current selection and the classpath to determine the import choices Alt-Shift-F - This fixes imports (adding imports that need to be added and removing unused imports) Ctrl-G - jump to line Alt-Shift-R - refactoring rename. I have committed this to tactile memory so that I try to do this all the time. Ctrl-K / L - matches the previous or next word. I use code completion as well of course.
