Attribute Completion / What is that mysterious arrow?

Two quick questions for the OS X version 3:
1) When I'm typing attributes into a function call, sometimes PHPStorm hints at the attributes and sometimes it doesn't. I can't seem to find the key command or event to trigger this. Anyone know?
2) A lot of the keyboard shortcuts have a diagonal arrow in them, usually (always?) to the NW (up and left). I've tried using left and up arrow keys simultaneously, but that doesn't appear to work. Can anyone help me with that?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Stephane,

I'm not a Mac user, so you will have to look up for shortcuts yourself based on menu items:

1. "hints at the attributes into a function call"? I guess you are talking about list of parameters. If so -- View | Parameter Info (needs to be invoked when cursor is inside function's paramaters list: myFynction(<CURSOR>) ). This tooltip is shown automatically when you just finished entering function name, for every other time you need to invoke it manually (AFAIK).

If it's not what you are after -- please show a screenshot (or screencast).

2. Since I'm not a Mac user I have no real idea what are you talking about .. but if you post a screenshot I may give you some ideas.

1) Brilliant! Thanks!

2) See attached. Notice the commands at the bottom of the list.

Once again -- I'm not a Mac user ... but I'm pretty sure it is "Home" (NW) and "End" (SE)

Ah, that makes sense and you're right! Thanks again.
