The recording of our July 23 webinar with Hadi Hariri, WebStorm – Things You Probably Didn’t Know, is now available on JetBrains YouTube channel.
Hadi covers a wide range of topics including Navigation around the project, Code editing, Code analysis, Code style and many others. During his demo he uses keyboard shortcuts extensively so that you can also pick up some new useful key bindings.
Here are a couple of links that cover some of the things mentioned during the webinar:

And here’s a short Q&A section based on the questions asked during the webinar:
Q: When I’m using only one editor tab, can I undo and redo changes in any of the files?
A: Sure, WebStorm keeps track of all your changes. You can go back to any file you’ve edited before and undo the change. You can also do that using the Local History feature – right-click on the file, select Local History, and you will see the whole history of your recent changes with the option to revert them. Call Local History on the project root to see all recent changes in the project.
Q: I would like some tips on working with Git from the IDE.
A: Unfortunately, we were not able to cover VCS integration in this webinar. Watch one of our past webinars on using VCS (including Git) in IntelliJ IDEA-based IDEs.
Q: Is there a master list of all the keyboard shortcuts?
A: You can find the default keymap by going to Help | Default Keymap Reference. The complete list of shortcuts is available in Preferences | Keymap. From there you can search the shortcuts by action name, or search actions by the shortcut. Read more about shortcuts in this blog post.
Q: How can I access the Productivity Guide mentioned during the webinar?
A: The Productivity Guide is available via the Help menu. It shows you the IDE productivity features that you’ve already tried as well as those you have yet to discover.
Q: As a relatively new user of WebStorm, I like these type of webinars that show off new feature, how-to’s, and other advanced tips. I feel that I only use a small portion of WebStorm and need to be exposed to the rest of the product.
A: Check out our previous videos and webinars covering new IDE features:
