Newbie questions

I'm a new user and have some questions:

  1. When I press Ctrl+C without a selection in order to copy the current line, the line is selected. Can I configure Idea to just copy, not select, like in Sublime Text and Visual Studio?
  2. When I press Ctrl+V to paste a line copied as described in (1), the line is inserted at the caret position, which breaks the current line in two if the caret isn't positioned to the far left. Sublime Text and Visual Studio insert it before the current line instead. Can I configure Idea to do the same?
  3. I can't type @ or $ into Idea's terminal. When I press the keys (AltGr+2 and AltGr+4 respectively), nothing happens. How can I fix it?
  4. The Code menu says the shortcut for commenting out a line is Ctrl+Slash. My keyboard doesn't have a slash key, but I can type a slash with Shift+7. If I press Ctrl+Shift+7 I get a small "7" marker in the margin, but nothing is commented. What's wrong?

That's it for now, hopefully these issues are easy to fix or work around. I'm using Idea 14.0.1 on Windows 8.1.

Hello.

Not many positive answers, unfortunately.

1. Copy line: please vote for https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-74325

2. Paste line: I've found neither a way to configure it nor a request in our bugtracker. Please create one: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA

3. Yes, there is a bunch of problems related to the input with modifier keys in Terminal. As an example (not exactly your issue): https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-123442
And its related, and related of related.You can create your own issue or vote for some existent one.

4. Maybe the easiest way is to create or modify the keymap scheme on Settings dialog / Keymap page.

Regards,
Alexander.

Just one more thought. Maybe, you are not aware of "Duplicate" action. Without selection it just duplicates (copy+paste) current line. Maybe it can help with point 2.

Thanks, duplicate might be useful for users that copy-paste a lot, but won't help if you want to e.g. move a line to a different file.
