Is there shortcut for ellipsis button?

Hi.
Sorry for stupid question, but as I remember IDEA is announced as full keyboard supporting application. I prefer to not ever touch mouse while editing my code in IDEA.
But I'm unable to address corresponding ellipsis button in many dialogs (refactorings dialogs as example) and it really annoys me to use mouse only to press such buttons. Have I missed the way I can do it with my keyboard?

Thanks in advance,
Pavel

It seems some times Alt + Enter doesn't work. (e.g. Extract superclass dialog package select field). But Ctrl + Enter works here :). It is some strange, isn't it? Nevertheless now I can avoid mouse usage. Thanks a lot.

You read some old doc for 3.0, and it's surely not true on MacOS ..
grrrr. :(

I suggest you install the DescribeKey plugin: it tells you what's mapped
to shortcuts, as you press them. Invaluable.

What I need is the opposite: input what I need to do (preferable via mind reading), and the plugin gives me the shortcut I want.

I'm afraid mind reading won't be implemented in 5.0, but in the
meantime, what would really help is
"keyboard shortcuts: quick filter, word based. "

Pavel,

Could you please let us know when Alt-Enter does not work for you?

Eugene,

It doesn't work for me at least either in "Extract superclass" or "Extract interface" dialogs when I want to change target package.
I use build 1377 under win 2000.

Sorry, I have mistyped.
Build number 3177 of course.

These two dialogs have just been fixed. If you find any other places, please
feel free to post about them.

Best regards,
