Code Editor Shortcut Keys

There are a few forms with fields in which code can be maintained. In such fields a special code editor is available to make the maintenance of the code a little easier. The code editor offers a few shortcut keys that become available as soon as the cursor has been placed in a code field.

The available shortcut keys are:

  • Ctrl+F (or Command+F on a Mac) = Start searching
  • Ctrl+G (or Command+G on a Mac) = Find next
  • Shift+Ctrl+G (or Shift+Command+G on a Mac) = Find previous
  • Shift+Ctrl+F (or Command+Option+F on a Mac) = Replace
  • Shift+Ctrl+R (or Shift+Command+Option+F on a Mac) = Replace all
  • Alt+F (not available on a Mac) = Persistent search – dialog does not autoclose, Enter to find next, Shift+Enter to find previous
  • Alt+G (or Option+G on a Mac) = Jump to line
  • Esc = Close dialog

When the shortcut Ctrl+F is used, the Search dialog opens at the top of the code field. After entering a search phrase and pressing they Enter key, each occurrence of the search phrase shows up in the scrollbar to provide a rough indication of where the phrase exists in the code.
