Better keyboardactions

Hello

I have been trying to use IDEA without the mouse. It works
great and its only a few things that are annoying. The most
annoying thing is how to create a new class (or file) not using
the mouse. I know two ways

Alt-F1 > Enter > Arrow Left > Num . > Arrow down > Arrow right > Enter

and the other way is using F5 (copy class) but that is kind of cheating

is there a better way ?

Are there other common actions that is not reasonable without using
the mouse ?

You can always use the IDEA macro recorder and assign it a shortcut key.

Unfortunately not. It won't record the Enter keypress needed

Perhaps then we could submit a RFE that the macros can be edited a la
Photoshop, where for each action you can toggle a checkbox "suppress
dialog", which causes it to run with the arguments entered while you
recorded the macro.

There should be also a top-level "suppress dialog" three-state checkbox,
which would take precedence for all actions macro.

Does it sound like a reasonable suggestion?
