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.

Note that the predefined keymaps are not editable. When you re-configure shortcut associations for the first time, JetBrains Rider will automatically create a copy of the currently selected predefined keymap, which then becomes editable

Keymap Management Buttons

CopyCreate a child keymap on the basis of the keymap selected in the Keymaps list.
ResetAbandon all the changes made to a custom keymap and restore the configuration of the parent keymap.
DeleteRemove the selected custom keymap from the list.
Prefer key position over key char with national layout The option is available only when a non-English keyboard layout has been detected. If enabled, JetBrains Rider interprets some keys with special characters 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 Alt + / on a German keyboard, press Alt + -.
Based on keymapThis read-only field shows the name of the parent keymap.
