Configuring Quick Lists
On this page:
A Quick List is a pop-up menu of IntelliJ IDEA commands, configured by the user and associated with a keyboard or mouse shortcut. You can create as many quick lists, as necessary. Each command, included in a quick list, is identified by a sequential number. Numbering starts from the numerals (0 to 9), and then proceeds with the letters in alphabetical order.
