Step out of things like braces with tab key


First of all, I would like to say I'm really enjoying CLion and it feels very natural to use. There is one thing that's really bothering me though. I primarily use Visual Studio and there's this feature where you can step out of things like closing curly braces, parentheses, and double quotes by pressing the tab key.

This is essential to my workflow and I'd really like to be able to do this in CLion. Is there any way to make this possible in CLion? I've looked through the settings and searched the web, but I haven't found anything. This might be because I don't really know what this feature it's called though.

I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me. Even if this isn't possible, I'd still appreciate anyone telling me so. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi Jordan,

thank you for using our product.

In CLion you can navigate to the code block end using combination of the Ctrl and } keys (Windows, Linux) or Alt, Cmd
and ] (OS X).
You can find this feature settings under Settings | Keymap (Preferences | Keymap for OS X) menu command. On the right pane there are Move Caret to.. shortcuts.
IDE allows you to edit them. Right-click the shortcut of interest and select an action from the context menu.
