easier access to 'Recent find usages'

Is there a easier way to access 'Recent find usages' instead of going to 'Edit - Find - Recent Find Usages'? I tried to use Keymap, however this one is shown as a fold/directory or something which does not allow to add shortcut. Any idea?


Thanks.

Press Alt-3 to focus the Find pane and then press Ctrl-E to open recent find usages. It's not currently possible to open recent find usages from a keyboard shortcut when the focus is in the editor.

Thanks. When you say "not currently possible", do you know if it is easy to build if this feature is requested or there is some desgin/infrastructure issue preventing such a feature?

I can live with two shortcuts, however one will be more welcomed.

There is no big technical difficulty. The main problem is the lack of available shortcut keys in the IntelliJ IDEA keymap.

The macro facility can help you here.  The two keystrokes can be recorded in a macro, which can then be bound to a keystroke.  It is also possible to put the macro on your own quicklist and bind the quicklist to a keystroke.  That is what I do.
