dotPeek 2019.2 Help

Keyboard shortcuts

dotPeek has inherited a great deal of its functionality from JetBrains ReSharper. Keyboard shortcuts used in dotPeek are no exception; similar to ReSharper, dotPeek provides two sets of keyboard shortcuts:

  • Visual Studio This scheme was introduced in ReSharper in order to minimize conflicts with Visual Studio's own keyboard shortcuts.

  • ReSharper 2.x/IntelliJ IDEA This scheme shares the majority of shortcuts with those used in IntelliJ IDEA and its derivative web development IDEs. It provides a common keyboard-centric experience among all JetBrains development environments.
