Intellij Key Map Changes

"We become what we behold. We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us."

-Marshall McLuhan


Choosing the right tool is one of the most important tools when starting a project. Adjusting that tool to work best for your needs is arguably more important.

Here are a list of my changes to Intellij/Android Studio default key map. I will continue to update this list as they change.

  • Find Usages ^ + F - This is one of my most common tools used and I like the ability to call it quickly.
  • Editor Tabs -> Close ⌘ + W - I cannot get over that this isn't the default
  • Run in Intellij ^ + R
  • Make Project ⇧ + ⌘ + M - Quick makes are nice to see any compiler errors
