newby did not found some features in PHPStorm 6.0

Hi,
I am newby in PHPStorm. I have  installed PHPStorm 6.0 and I did not found some features :
1) User's code completetion, when I can enter my small piecies of code and this code will be autocompleted in editor.
2) Bookmarks in code
3) In tab of opened I want to show Selected file more discerned, like BOLD for example, as I can hardly to define current tab.
4) Can I make common layout not so dark? For example in search In project dialog I can hardly see entered text on dark background.
5) If is there way In search In Project to exclude some directories from search?
6) Is there function to make indenting current page to current indent options?
7) How to set Hot key to close current page?

If there Search By key on  help page http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/webhelp/getting-help.html ?
I would like to make search like "Bookmars", but I did not found such function.

Hi there,

1) I guess you are talking about Live Templates functionality (Settings | Live Templates)


2) Navigate | Bookmarks


3) AFAIK no (I personally have no problem identifying the tab)
But you may color tabs based on some criteria (file names) -- maybe it will help a bit: http://blog.jetbrains.com/webide/2010/04/paint-you-files-to-make-them-stand-out/

4) Sorry, don't know what you are talking about without a screenshot that would illustrate the problem. But generally speaking: try different UI theme (Settings | Appearance); GUI theme color is NOT tweakable (it's hardcoded in theme).

5) Define custom scope (Settings | Scopes) and use it in  Find/Replace (and many other) dialogs

6) Code | Auto-Indent Lines ?? (also: Code | Reformat Code...)

7) Settings | Keymap (make copy of any bundled first and then you can customize any key) -- it has search functionality to help you find correct action faster.

8) Yes -- on right side, where it says "Search" (it's a side panel that will be expanded when clicked)


P.S.
In case you do not know where any particular command is located or it's shortcut, use "Help | Find Action" (Ctrl+Shift+A) -- searches trough ALL commands (as well as settings and unmapped commands, if pressed twice): http://blog.jetbrains.com/webide/2012/11/find-your-way-around-your-code/

Settings screen also has quick search (top left corner)

Thank you, it helped a lot.
But I still have some more questions:

1) Opening  Live Templates I create new Item under php group :
http://i052.radikal.ru/1305/c8/b401024f7612.png
It seems that my "deb" item is just as rest items
But clicking Ctrl+J in the editor or entering in editoor "deb" I do not see this "deb" item but see all the rest items from this list(as on prinscreen).

You forgot to define the context (in what languages this template can be used) -- click on blue "Define" link and check appropriate context(s).

"View | External Documentation" (while standing on such function/variable/class/etc) does exactly as name suggests.

It is available only if quick documentation (View | Quick Documentation) for it has @link tag with valid URL. In case if such URL is not present (but it should be present for all standard functions), use "External Documentation" (or click on icon with arrow up) from within that Quick Documentation window -- it will execute search on php.net site.

P.S.

I suggest exploring main menu a bit and check "Help | Default Keymap Reference".

"Hep | Find Action" is also very useful if don't know exact location of command.

1) Some more question:
After search in project box with found files is opened. Can I to copy to clipboard path of file without opeing it in editor?

2) Are only results of current search visible? Can I view results of prior searches?

3) Can I to make autocomplete to work for special html symbols(like) in html page ?

4) Opening new page can I to open it at end of editor(I mean it must be last page from left to right )?

Hi there,

1) After search in project box with found files is opened. Can I to copy to clipboard path of file without opeing it in editor?

"Project box"? -- Not sure what exactly you mean by this. Do you mean "Find" tool window with search results (see image below)?

In any case -- you can use "Edit | Copy Path" -- can be used from other locations as well.

2) Are only results of current search visible? Can I view results of prior searches?

You can pin current search results tab (see the image above) so the next search will be opened in separate tab (see the image below). "Find in Path" dialog also has "Open in new tab" option (on the bottom)

3) Can I to make autocomplete to work for special html symbols(like) in html page ?

This one? http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-514

On another hand -- it seems to work OK for me in 129.394 build when completion invoked manually (Ctrl+Space) -- I do not use automatic completion popup

4) Opening new page can I to open it at end of editor(I mean it must be last page from left to right )?
