Search for a target by name
PyCharm Edu makes it possible to look for any item of the source code, databases, actions, elements of the user interface, and so on in a single action.
- In the popup that opens, start typing the search string, to narrow down the suggestion list.
The search string can be a name of a symbol or action, an option, or an abbreviation of an action.
- Select the desired target from the suggestion list. The further behavior depends on the search target. PyCharm Edu may silently navigate to the desired source code, show the desired setting, or a popup list of Find Action.
You can also just press the desired shortcut, to switch from the Search everywhere popup to any other navigation and search action: for example, press Ctrl+N to jump to the selected class, or Ctrl+Alt+S to show the corresponding option in the Settings dialog.
