Speed Search

Quickly find an item in a long list by typing to narrow.

Want to quickly find a choice in a long list? Whether it's a file in the project tool, a symbol in Find Symbol, an action in Search Everywhere, or a choice in File | New, speed search makes it fast and simple...without using the mouse.

Filter by:

  • Typing a letter, causing the list to narrow

  • Typing another letter...if you now match only one choice, it's selected and you can press enter

  • Press space and type the letter of another word in the option

  • Use punctuation such as forward-slash to mean directory separator and period to mean file extension
