Keymap not following Eclipse keymap

I went to File > Settings > Keymap and chose Eclipse in the Keymaps drop-down, but so far I've found two keyboard shortcuts that don't map the same way they do in Eclipse:

  1. Ctrl+F - should be find in file; maps to search/replace (which is Ctrl+H in Eclipse)
  2. Ctrl+H - should be find in file + replace (which maps to Ctrl+F)
  3. Ctrl+W - should be close active editor tab, but instead it just closes whatever non-editor tab you were on until it's nothing but the Project window that keeps closing

I had to go in and manually find these (and I couldn't search by keyboard shortcut, I had to guess the name of the effect, like "Close Active Tab", which may not be intuitive and is frustrating).

Why don't these map properly, what's the purpose of them not mapping properly, and is there any way for me to have search look for the keyboard shortcut rather than just the name of the effect?

Hi Dave,

It has not been done on purpose, actually. Please vote for the following issues:

Yes, there's a button right after the search field, called 'Find Actions by Shortcut'.

I tried to add a comment and vote but those functions appear to have gotten stuck or do nothing.

Also I have to sign in every day to this forum; I don't like some of the new changes they've done.
