Finding what a key is bound to

Is there a way to know what a key is bound to? Many times I wonder "What
does Ctrl-Shift-Alt-F11 do again?". It'd be nice to be able to ask Idea what
a specific key combination does, without having to look it up in the keymap.

(Basically I'm missing emacs' "M-x describe-key" functionality)

Thanks,

Vince.

I agree, this should be implemented. Currently I check by going to the keymap, picking any action, clicking "add shortcut," and pretending to add that shortcut to that action. It then tells me which action the shortcut conflicts with.

This is exactly what I do too. But I agree it would be nice for this to be more direct.

There is a similar feature request already filed :
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=19504

I agree it'd be nice to be able to know
- what does X shortcut relate to
- what are all shortcuts associated with a certain key (F5/CTRL-F5, or
ALT-N/CTRL-ALT-N, etc...)
- have a visual keymap sheetcode, you'd see what are all the keys used
