Mac OS X key bindings in Idea 2016.2.1

Answered

What happened to the key bindings?

I have just updated Idea to the version below and all my key bindings have changed.

I used to delete a line with CMD + F12, close a tab with CMD + W etc. All those bindings have been lost (apparently) since the update.

When checking the bindings in Idea properties they definitely are different and I can't find my previous configuration creating a LOT of drag on my productivity.

Can someone help me understand what went wrong?

What keymap is selected now? Try changing it to a different one as there are two keymaps for Mac.

Sorry CMD + F12 would give me the current file structure in a popup, to remove a line I used CMD + BackSpace

How do you explain that the Mac OS keymap would consider closing a tab with CTR + Shift + F4 ??? that's a windows key binding

Attach a screenshot from the keymap settings dialog.

It's a correct key binding for Mac OS X 10.5+ keymap. Which keymap did you use before?  Maybe it was Mac OS X?

Same for the base Mac OS X keymap

CMD + W which is the Mac way of closing tabs and was the binding in all previous 2016 versions.

It is definitely NOT the correct binding, it has never been, it just is now!

What part of it has always been CMD + W doesn't make sense? Let me look up a colleague keymap that hasn't upgraded yet. (will have to wait a bit for that though)

You are mixing the actions. Close Active Tab for the tool window is not the same as Close Editor Tab:

You are absolutely right, thank you so much. The issue is somehow the keymap changed from Mac OS X 10.5+ to Mac OS X

Then instead of testing it again i was trusting the keymap binding window in the wrong place.

I reverted to that one and all the key bindings seem to work now.
