Can you please share the shortcut keys to drag the dialogue box without using mouse

Comment #6 by Adriano Armani Nov 23, 2015 at 02:29 pm  Reply

You have also missed the shortcut Ctrl-Delete, which makes you go to the end of the file. Anyway, congratulations for the good work.

Good Work

Reply #1 Adriano Armani Nov 23, 2015 at 02:35 pm

Sorry. Actually is "Ctrl-End". Anyhow, this is not in the shortcut list.

Comment #5 by Vinay Dec 24, 2014 at 06:11 am  Reply

You have missed out 2 important shortcut keys (esp. for developers). Ctrl- and Ctrl-/ These control characters help to navigate word-by-word in a multi-word Eg. Consider the word "MyFamilyIsBigFamily" If the cursor is at M, then pressing Ctrl or Ctrl / shall move the cursor to F and pressing them again will move to Is.
