Favorite shortcuts

Posted 25 June 2010 - 10:54 AM

In another thread about keyboard shortcuts it was mentioned that 'someone' should start a thread just for favorite time savers and keyboard shortcuts. I didn't see any new post started... so here's a starting point. If someone did start one elsewhere, can someone with some power merge them please?

I'm posting these with the mnemonics I use to remember them, not the labels used in the menus.

control-K, control-D
Kodeclean, Document-wide. Re-aligns all the code tabbing, braces, spacing and so on.

control-K, control-S
Kode, Surround. Surround the selected code with... Snippet popup selection. Try selecting a code block then type: control-K, Control-S, try {enter}
Your block is now surrounded in a try/catch block

control-M, control-O
Minimize, Outlining. Collapses all the code in the open document. GREAT if you use #region blocks for your properties, methods, events, fields

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1

For Visual Studio, would have to be CTRL+SHIFT+F12. It is great for resolving compile time errors and inserting code. Those little red and blue boxes we all love so much, resolved!
