YES, I Did search the FORUMS for hotkeys.
YES, I Did search Dev Studio Online Help.

So far I've found:
Ctrl Tab - for jumping windows within dev studio
Ctrl M - for inserting "-*" to comment a line in the code.

Is there a hot key for uncommenting a line?

Are there other helpful hotkeys or a LINK to a list somewhere?

And F5 to execute a procedure or HTML file.

However, if you have an explorer window on the foreground F5 will refresh it instead of executing the highlighted procedure or whatever (usually not what you wanted).

Ctrl+M doesn't work on the last line of a file, which is a bit annoying when you're in the habit of documenting your code before actually writing it.

Oh, and let's not forget F1 for the Help. I haven't found a way to open the Help on a selected keyword yet though, is that possible?

When in the Command Console:
Shift + Ctrl + (up arrow) = Cycle Previously Executed Commands (Same as GUI's Left Arrow)

Shift + Ctrl + (down arrow) = Cycle Next Executed Commands (Same as GUI's Right Arrow)

and of course F5 to execute.


In MRE General:
Ctrl + Tab to cycle open windows.
Ctrl + F4 to close active window

(Alt-F4 closes entire app)

After searching (Ctrl + F), F3 repeats the search, but only 'Down' wards.

Ctrl + U lower cases.
CTRL + Shift + U uppercases.

After highlighting a block, TAB shifts it right (with TABs). **
After highlighting a block, SHIFT + TAB shifts it left (with TABs). **
** Oddly, the line immediately below the highlighted region seems to always be affected (even when not selected).

Ctrl-F2 toggle a bookmark
Ctrl-F3 toggle word case

Take a quick look at the edit menu from the text editor. There is a pretty good list there.

Shift+F3 searches upwards, although that's a somewhat uncomfortable key-combination to use with just your left hand.
