Shortcut for arrow keys?

In Sublime Text I had a custom shortcut (Shift+Space) to move the caret to the right by one, which was a handy way to move past parentheses, brackets, etc that were created automatically, without taking my fingers off the home row, or having to retype the parens or bracket. 

Is there any way to create a custom action - move caret right by one - and bind it to the shortcut I want?

Hi there,

Just assign additional shortcut to "Editor Actions | Right" action (Settings/Preferences | Keymap)

 

P.S.

Ctrl+Shift+Enter -- Complete Current Statement (using Default keymap on Windows) -- could be used as well (depends on context of course).

Wow, thanks. Feel kinda silly, but I was searching for actions that included "caret" so I never saw the one that just says "Right"

This only works for the editor. Is it possible to move the cursor / selection in other parts of IDE using the short cuts. For example Alt+1 to open the project view and then some short cuts to  move the selection up / down. The arrow keys on my laptop keyboard are not at a practical location.

I would love support for navigating through project menu without arrow keys, as well!

While this might now exactly be the solution you're looking for, you can always try IdeaVim plugin and use Vim keymap, where you navigate solely with letters. It's a good idea to also set up a shortcut for disabling Vim IdeaVim so you can easily switch to regular shortcuts when you need to.
