AppCode 2021.3 Help


Use this page to search for shortcuts and actions in the selected keymap, create, edit, and remove custom keymaps, and change shortcuts associated with actions in custom keymaps. Predefined keymaps are not editable. When you change shortcut associations for a predefined keymap (listed in bold), AppCode creates a copy of that keymap, which you can modify (listed in regular font with an indent below the parent keymap).

Other options



Use national layout for shortcuts

The option is available only when using a non-English Latin keyboard layout. On macOS, it is enabled by default, and all characters are interpreted as determined by the layout. When the option is disabled, keys with special characters are interpreted as if you were using an English keyboard layout. For example, pressing the minus key - on a German keyboard will produce a forward slash /, so to execute ⌥/ on a German keyboard, press ⌥-.
