Shortcuts help developers to be more productive and prevent distraction caused by mouse. Unfortunately, there are subtle shortcut differences between different platforms. And there isn’t any assigned keyboard shourtcuts to several actions which are frequently used. Following Intellij IDEA shortcuts will increase productivity in MacOs environment:
Intellij IDEA does not provide preconfigured VCS shortcuts. To make it easy to remember, all shortcuts are assigned to ALT button and all shortcuts denote the first letter of assigned action.
Alt+A Annotate Alt+U Update Alt+R Revert Alt+C Commit Alt+H History Alt+C Commit/Check In Alt+P Push
The reason why ‘I’ character is selected as shortcut of “Commit/Check In” is, because Intellij IDEA already used this character in “Commit Changes” dialog for “Commit/Check In” action.
Diff / Merge
These shortcuts were inspired by the media player’s icons on the keyboard.
