Keymap problem

Hi,

I wanted better IDE for Android development than Eclipse and I think, IntelliJ IDEA is what I was looking for.
But I have one problem, I cannot change the keymap settings. And it's important for me, because I'm using czech keyboard and now, I cannot type some special characters like "{", "&", etc.

I'd like to use Visual Studio keymap, but I can't. Everytime I tried to change it (via File -> Settings -> Keymap), nothing happened.

Could you please tell me, how can I change it?
I'm using IntelliJ IDEA 10.0.2 Community Edition FREE.

Thank you very much.

Hi.

Predefined keymap cannot be changed, but you can create a copy (see Copy button in Settings / Keymap), modify and use it further.

10.0.2 should create a copy automatically on attempt to modify predefined keymap. It works for me in Ultimate, 103.72.

Regards,
Alexander.

Thank you for your answer. But, I don't want to change predefined keymap. I just want to use the Visual Studio keymap, not the Default one.

Visual Studio keymap is also predefined: it is bundled with IDEA. User just has to create a copy of it, if he wants to make modifications.

I don't want to modify the Visual Studio keymap.
I just want to use it, but when I change the keymap settings to Visual Studio keymap, then nothing happened and keymap is not changed.

Sorry for misunderstanding.

I cannot reproduce the problem with Community Edition too. When you say "Nothing happens", what do you mean exactly: the value is combo box is reverted immediately? Old value is restored on Settings dialog reopening? Or some shortcut does not work?

Thanks,
Alexander.

The value in combo box is changed. When I reopen Settings dialog, the value is set to "Visual Studio", but the IDEA is using Default keymap. When I look to any Action, the shortcuts are not changed.

Most shortcuts of Visual Studio scheme are the same as Default scheme.

But, for example, with Default Settings are opened with Ctrl+Alt+S, while with VS it is done with Alt+F7. And this works for me. What shortcuts are not changed for you?

This also works for me.
But for example, in VS shortcut for Format Document is CTRL + E, D. But this doesn't work in IDEA.
What VS shortcuts are in IDEA?

Well, got it. The scheme is changed successfully, but VS scheme does not completely correspond to real Studio (or Studio version that you use, talking precisely).

In Settings / Keymap there are 2 fields to search an action: filter by action name and filter by shortcut. "Reformat Code" shows Alt+F8 and Ctrl+Alt+F.

Ok, and is there any way to use shortcuts from VS 2010 Ultimate?

Probably the following:
1. Copy existent scheme and redefine shortcuts you need.
2. Create an issue in our bugtracker: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net on updating the predefined scheme.

Thanks,
Alexander.

Alexander,

but can Idea do these shortcuts?


I thought Idea supports only simultaneously-pressed-keys shortcut
and Rankor wants serial-pressed-keys shortcut

IDEA can execute 2 serial keystrokes as a shortcut, if delay between strokes is small enough. You can try to configure it in Settings to see how it works.
