30 Days with IntelliJ IDEA. Navigation
This week brings a new article from the 30-day guide on the most tricky features of IntelliJ IDEA. Today we will talk about navigation, and how it helps you to faster switch between the pieces of code you are working on, and therefore be more productive.
Did you know?
When you start IntelliJ IDEA for the first time, all of its setting set to their default values. Over time, as you are using the IDE more and more, you become more familiar with it so you know how to change the default settings for more efficiency.
You probably noticed that the navigation bar in the top of the window is useless most of the time.
This is why developers usually hide it and call on demand via Alt + Home (Alt + ↖ for Mac) shortcut.
The Navigation bar supports the speed search and other actions, such as code generations, documentation popups, etc. In many cases it can serve you even better than the Project tool window.
Please read the complete article to learn more about this and other navigation features.
Stay tuned for more articles soon, and develop with Pleasure!
