Eclipse Tool Tip #6: Quick Find

Most people know that in Windows base application you can hit the ctrl+f keys to search within a document. Of course supports Eclipse ctrl+f but if you want to do a quick search just highlight the word of interest (you can double click to highlight) and hit the ctrl+k to find the next instance of said word. This is so convenient because you do not interact with any find dialog box, again to do that you can use the ctrl+f hot keys.

I can’t say it enough time that if you are using Eclipse on a daily basis you should know the hot keys to build, run, and debug your code. I have written about Eclipse hot keys before in Eclipse Tool Tip #4: Key Assist and I will probably write about debug specific hot key in a future Eclipse Tool Tip.
