I only use 3 features of great idea

There are hundreds cool features of IDEA 5.0? yes, really.
But I can not remember so many features except 3:
1,Find usages
I find the usages to understand one variable, what it is
2,Alt-enter
It help me add import statement, or I had to read doc to find the package it is in
3,Refactor/rename
sometimes I want to change variable/method's name
Can you improve the help/tip to make it more easy to use those cool features?

Try auto-import as well
IDE Settings->Editor->Behavior->Add unambiguous imports on the fly

No, not when idle, NOW.

Look at the Help->Productivity Guide. You're missing out on a lot of stuff.
