It's also amusing how freaking fast it works .. I hit CtrlAltF7 while standing on "Iterator" and see all places where our projects uses Iterators in no time.

First, it's wonderful. Fast, useful, unintrusive, great.

Second, why the hell do I bother reading the release notes, if amazing functionality like this isn't listed!

If there is only one usage, jump to it immediately. It's intelli(J)gence.

Which one isn't on Linux/KDE? Maybe it's not IDEA's fault?

The shortcut doesn't work for me either.

I'm using ubuntu. I can't see what it does in ubuntu and so I can't change it (in ubuntu - I want to use ctr-alt-f7 with idea).

Cheers, Paul.

Agreed, it's a great new feature and very quick

The only thing missing is a proper icon in the navigation list (http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-13730)

I now see it doesn't work when part of the word is selected and Ctrl-Alt-F7 is pressed.
For example, I have getHiddenSearchId() - the text in bold is selected. If I now hit CtrlShiftF7 - all appearances of "HiddenSearch" in the current file are colored. But if instead I hit CtrlAltF7 - "No usages found" tooltip is displayed.

Is it by design ? Thank you !

Hello Paul,

I have also met this issue in ubuntu. It has Alt+F7 bound to "Move window"
system action by default. This may be changed in Preferences / Keyboard shortcuts.
After that IDEA works Ok with Alt+F7.

The shortcut doesn't work for me either.

I'm using ubuntu. I can't see what it does in ubuntu and so I can't
change it (in ubuntu - I want to use ctr-alt-f7 with idea).

Cheers, Paul.

Alexander.

'Show usages' action is a quick'n'dirty 'Find usages' replacement.
It takes the 'find usages' settings, performs find usages and shows results
in the popup.
It has no relation to the Ctrl-shift-F7 action which does different things.

Pretty much any Linux system will have Ctrl-Alt-Fn assigned to selecting between virtual consoles.

It's just lucky that #7 is almost always the main windowing console, so it looks like this keystroke does nothing. Otherwise some people would get dropped onto a text mode screen with no idea of how to get back.

As this Linux key binding is hard to change, a different default key for IDEA would be nice.

That said: Cool feature!

Within IDEA, it also clashes with the already existing "Force Step
Into..." action of the debugger.

But yes, fantastic addition guys...

On Linux you can change the console with CtrlAltF?.
Every distribution since several years supports this. Fortunatly
Ctrl-Alt-F7 changes to the seventh console. In nearly every distribution
the first X server runs there. So nothing happens (since it is already
active)...

It is not Idea's fault. It is just a senseless default (on Linux)...

You all are right. I forgot about this generic (X11?) shortcut.

Hi Alexander. Yeah, I'd done the same with Alt F7. The problem with Ctrl Alt F7 was that I didn't know what it did and so couldn't override the ubuntu key map. As other people on here have now stated, it changes terminal windows.

I didn't want to change that ubuntu shortcut (mainly because I didn't know how to :o)) and I still wanted the feature to be assigned to F7. So in the end I changed idea to map show usages to Shift Alt F7 and it works like a charm.

Slightly OT but I've had a few key shortcut issues moving from a windows environment to a ubuntu environment. An obvious one that springs to mind is the Ctrl Alt Left (or right) which jumps between workspaces in ubuntu!

Cheers Paul.
