Keymap for Tool window context menus

Hi there,

I was looking for a way to define a custom keymap for e.g. the "Edit Watch..." entry of the context menu of the "Watches" tab in the Debug window, but could not find anything.
Did I miss something? (Otherwise, I will file a tracker request)

Regards,
Jens

You are right - it's not possible now. Please file a tracker request.

Done (http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=10871).
By the way, in case this got implemented, what would happen if I assigned a keyboard shortcut to a tool window context menu item which is already assigned to e.g. a command in the main editor? The ideal behavior would be that the keymap editor would recognize that the "contexts" in which this shortcut could be applied are disjoint and would not complain; and whatever would happen when hitting the shortcut key should depend on the "context". Should I add this requirement to the tracker?

Yes, sure they won't conflict because they have different contexts where
they are applicable. However, the keymap editor will warn that there is
already an action assigned to the same shortcut (they keymap editor is not
aware about contexts). Just ignore it in that case.
