If you are using one of the predefined keymaps for your OS, you can print the default keymap reference card and keep it on your desk to consult it if necessary. This cheat sheet is also available under Help | Keymap Reference.

Choose the right keymap

To view the keymap configuration, open the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S and select Keymap.

  • Use a predefined keymap

    DataGrip automatically suggests a predefined keymap based on your environment. Make sure that it matches the OS you are using or select the one that matches shortcuts from another IDE or editor you are used to (for example, Eclipse or NetBeans ).

  • Tune your keymap

    You can modify a copy of any predefined keymap to assign your own shortcuts for commands that you use frequently.

  • Import custom keymap

    If you have a customized keymap that you are used to, you can transfer it to your installation.

Besides the default set of keymaps, you can add more as plugins (such as, keymaps for GNOME and KDE): open the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, select Plugins and search for keymap in the Marketplace.

Learn shortcuts as you work

DataGrip provides several possibilities to learn shortcuts:

  • Find Action is the most important command that enables you to search for commands and settings across all menus and tools.

    Press Ctrl+Shift+A and start typing to get a list of suggested actions. Then select the necessary action and press Enter to execute it.

    Find Action
  • Key Promoter X is a plugin that shows a popup notification with the corresponding keyboard shortcut whenever a command is executed using the mouse. It also suggests creating a shortcut for commands that are executed frequently.

  • If you are using one of the predefined keymaps for your OS, you can print the default keymap reference card and keep it on your desk to consult it if necessary. This cheat sheet is also available under Help | Keymap Reference.

  • To print a non-default or customized keymap, use the Keymap exporter plugin.
