The SQL Developer news is that Oracle SQL Developer 1.5 Early Adopters 1 (EA1) is out. If anything that should have had me straight on the blog, but I am tracking feature issues and feedback on the forum and so didn't. Then one of the team sent me this tip and it was just too good to lose:
You can use alt-shift-# (where # is a number) to create a "editor bookmark", then use alt-# to navigate to it.
So, if you have a number of worksheets open, you can create a bookmark selecting alt-shift-1, which assigns an alt-1 navigator shortcut to the active editor. You'll see a small numbered icon on editor's tab. If you repeat that for each open tab, then you can then navigate between tabs using keyboard strokes, alt-1, alt-2, etc.
A Few Other Keyboard Strokes:
- To use code editor templates you have created (in the preferences) use the keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+T.
- The keyboard shortcut for the SQL History is crtl +up or ctrl + down. This replaces whatever is in the worksheet with lines from your history.
- To create a new, unshared worksheet, use the keystroke ctrl+shift+N. This creates a separate, unshared worksheet. The unshared worksheets are labeled as follows: HR_ _<1>
So it seems there are lots of tips about, which you might like to know about or which you have discovered on your own and wished someone had told you. I'm going to try to tell you more and often as I can. If you have some for me, I'd love to hear about them.
