Eclipse Keyboard Shortcut of the Week
Posted by David Chandler on August 14, 2006
Just a quickie time-saver here. I hate having to use the mouse to navigate through code (yes, I can still use vi) as it slow and bothered my right shoulder enough over time to force me to mouse with my left hand. If you’re like me, you’ll want to know about:
Ctrl+Shift+T (Open Type) Just type the first few letters of the Java class you’re looking for, and voila, you can use the arrow keys to find exactly the right one. No more clicking on folders in Package Explorer.
Ctrl+Shift+R (Open Resource) Same drill, but works for any resource in the Package Explorer.
You can find a bunch more of my favorite keyboard shortcuts in my Eclipse Google Notebook (linked on left).
