    Hey, regarding shortcuts and usability, especially for Mac, i think you should think about Macbook users out there. The one you describe here requires 3 keys on macbooks, and is difficult to type. To get the ‘home’ key, you have to hit fn+’<-’ (and i’m not even sure Idea maps it properly)

    More generally, the Mac bindings that comes with your IDEs (i’m a long time RubyMine and Idea user) suck with MacBooks, and even more with non-qwerty keyboards (a hell of a lot shortcuts don’t work on my french macbook … hey, to type a ‘]’, i have to hit shift+option+’)’ … so no wonder any shortcut including a bracket won’t work …)

    that’s currently my only gripe with your products :)

    Shortcut for Documentation Popup is CTRL+ Q (Not J)
