Can I import my IntelliJ keyboard shortcuts into Webstorm?

Hi,

Many actions - like navigation, find & replace, and Git commands - are present in both IDEs. So I want to use the same shortcuts for these common actions in both IDEs. Sure, I can manually define them to be the same. But that seems like a task a computer is good at!

In theory, at least: I haven't even found a way to export my IntelliJ shortcuts (see below), let alone import anything into Webstorm.

So, is this possible somehow?


Regards,

Andriy Bazanov, thank you for your advice - it worked!

I first copied over my entire IntelliJ shortcut file ("keymaps/Mac OS X 10_5_ Karsten.xml"). But even after restarting and clearing out the cache, it wouldn't show in the list of "Keymaps". So I resorted to copying over the "<action>" elements from there into my WebStorm shortcut file. And that worked!

It's possible that the file from IDEA setup was referencing some keymap that was absent in your WebStorm .. or perhaps it was keymap name collision (e.g. 2 custom keymaps in 2 files but with the same name).

I'm glad that you have found a way to resolve that and it now works! 👍
