Extend/Shrink Selection

View | Extend/Shrink Selection
Ctrl+W / Ctrl+Shift+W

The Extend Selection feature allows you to successively select expanding blocks of code so that you can easily select any expression in the code by placing the caret somewhere inside it and pressing Ctrl+W a few times. Alternatively, choose View | Extend Selection .

Coding_Assistance__Extend_Selection_01
Coding_Assistance__Extend_Selection_02
Coding_Assistance__Extend_Selection_03
Coding_Assistance__Extend_Selection_04

Shrink Selection does exactly the opposite. Press Ctrl+Shift+W or choose View | Shrink Selection .

For guidelines on how to configure this feature to take CamelCase into account, see CamelHumps.

This feature is inspired by and borrowed from JetBrains ReSharper, a developer productivity tool for Microsoft Visual Studio.
