I have been using Eclipse since more than a decade. Now I am required to use IntelliJ in office. Is it good to change all shortcuts to be similiar to eclipse shortcuts beacuse of familiarity with eclipse shortcuts or one should one use IntelliJ shortcuts itself.Which is the better way .Thanks
Thanks.I went to settings and selected eclipse from the dropdown options under keyspace. Now if I use some shortcuts like control F11 of eclipse it is doing as expected that is running the program. However if I do sysout and do control spacebar the expectation was for it to replace that with System.out.println but instead it says 'no suggestions'.
Monica, I see that elsewhere you are talking about pair programming. Is that the reason your job requires everyone to use IntelliJ, for pair programming? If that's the case, you may find that others in the team object to having the eclipse shortcuts set, as that makes it harder for two paired programmers to trade roles between typing and observing. At least, that was my experience in one job which was very pair-programming oriented. Pairing worked best if both programmers could easily access the keyboard in equal measure - otherwise one person would end up doing all the typing, and the other would just end up watching and trying to avoid falling asleep. Well, that's what happened to me, anyway.
However, my experience of this was about 14 years ago; there may be other pairing tools available, especially now in the age of Covid - if you have some sort of remote pairing, it may be possible to have different IDE settings without affecting each other. But I suspect that's not how your team works, or they wouldn't expect everyone to use the same IDE.
