To create TODO items
  1. Open the desired file in the editor and position the caret at the place where a TODO item should be created.
  2. Create a comment. For example, you can use the or or or or or , or , or or or or or keyboard shortcut.
  3. In the comment, type the string that matches one of your TODO patterns. By default, any string that starts with TODO (regardless of the case) is interpreted as a TODO item and is highlighted accordingly.
  4. View the list of TODO items in the TODO tool window.
