Ctrl-B works on continue and break!

I just discoverd another cool feature of IDEA. Ctrl-B or
Ctrl-Mouse-Click work on continue and break statements. Nice!
I don't know how long this has been there (could be long:-) but I think
this functionality should be mentioned in the tips of the day or the
help (or is it?).

Bas

Some day, if I'm really lucky and search really hard, I'm going to know half of the features of this IDE.

That's a problem common to powerful tools like IDEA :
- you're never sure you know everything you should know
- you may ignore the thing that you need now and that would save your day.


I wish there were a COMPREHENSIVE and richly illustrated written
document, like
http://www.intellij.com/idea/features/2
, but comprehensive.
You would print it and read it cover to cover. You'd tick the paragraphs
you'd have to come back later, and rip the pages you won't need to read
again. It would containt everything.

Viewlet based demo/tutorials were mentioned months ago, but I haven't
seen any yet.

A bi-monthly newsletter, with cool usage tips and non-trivial
refactoring examples would be nice too.


Ages ago, I learn all there was to know about IDEA by reading the daily
tips.
Now, each time there is a new EAP build, I copy the changes to the top
of text file. Once I've learned, understood and memorized the feature, I
remove it from the file.
That's the advantage of the EAP : you can learn progressively, over
months. Though, I'm sure I missed cool features and usability shortcuts.

Long gone is the time when I could say that I knew IDEA from A to Z,
every shortcut, every feature, every tip. I miss being called IDEA-man.

AFAIK this is a new feature, recently implemented. Ariadna does not have it.

If jetBrainer say AFAIK, what should we think? ;)

Oops, sorry, I mistook the feature with another one:
highlighting of the places where exception is thrown if you press ctrl-shift-F7 on a "catch" or "try". This feature was added
recently.
