How do I find out which keybindings are already in use?
For an existing release you can look at e.g. KeymapProfileFor60 to see the specification.
If you are developing a module for NetBeans development builds,
you can just look at
in the section
This will show all global keybindings being used by modules in the standard IDE
as well as experimental update center
as of a few hours ago.
Editor-specific keybindings are listed in
which is unfortunately harder to browse through.
Be conservative about adding new keybindings;
they are a precious resource.
Be careful with bindings using
Alt, as these often clash with mnemonics,
Linux window manager shortcuts, etc.
If at all possible, use a multistroke binding:
Shortcuts/D-J R C.shadow binds the 3-stroke sequence
Ctrl-J R C.
