new to intelij, coming from eclipse

after about 5 years of working with eclipse, and know all it's nooks and crannies, and my favorite shortcuts (ctrl+3 for master shortcuts,F11 for run last configuration,Ctrl+Shit+T, etc..) as well getting it's  structure (workspace,view,editors) , it's debug view (using detail formatters, conditional brakepoints, exporting importing launchers) and off course using it's UI (jpa details view), i'm now forced to  move to inlifj cause i'm about to move to a new company. so i was wondering if there's a detail "migration" guide to ease in the transition. for example, where does JPA support come into play (can it provide ui forms for annotations?) what about incremntal java compiler?  i've allready ordered intelij in action but that's rather old.

Check out http://wiki.jetbrains.net/intellij/Eclipse_FAQ for a migration FAQ.
Not sure what you mean by "UI forms for annotations".
Incremental compilation is fully supported in IntelliJ IDEA.

ok, that got me a few things, (for example loading up the key map for eclipse), but it didn't cover anything ,for example there is one thing i miss, and that is Ctrl+3 in eclipse. it provided a shortcuts to shorcuts all you had to is start typing the action you wanted to do, i know there's something like that in intelij but inlike eclipe's i won't give you for example a setting section inside settings.
also what if i wanted to view compile problems AND  the entire project's file?

and one last thing, is there any possiblity to print out selected sections from the help? (not talking about single pages).

In IntelliJ IDEA, we have a separate "find action" action (Help | Find Action..., Ctrl-Shift-A) and settings search (open the Settings dialog, start typing in the search box).
As of IntelliJ IDEA 11, there is no possibility to view the "Problems" scope view and the project view at the same time. Most likely this will be available in IntelliJ IDEA 12.
The contents of our Help files is mostly designed to be used as a reference, not as offline reading material, so we don't provide it as PDF or in another printable form.
