Suggests wrong keys in my Mac. For example, where I have to press Cmd+1, it suggests Alt+1. Those are the shortcuts for Windows.

hey Dmitry Thank you for plugin. Is it still in active development? thanks PS sorry for duplicate but there is two same plugins))

Can key promoter do statistics on the shortcut I pressed. Eg, daily most pressed shortcut, weekly and monthly. So I can know which IDE feature I use most, thanks :)

Love this plugin as it lets me quickly begin to use the key binding. Only been an intellij user for a couple of months but I cant live without this plugin. My only concern is the key bindings do not seem to use the correct mappings in the case of the tool windows at the bottom. I am using the Mac 10.5 mappings and tools are mapped to +number but the KeyPromoter displays it as +number. This caused me to try every cord combination I could but it never worked until I looked up the mapping my self. Could you please fix this in a future revision.

Installed, according to WebStorm 6, Version 1.0.11 but the Settings are still always resetted after restart of WebStorm. :-( Neiter the Colors nor the size of the Fonts are permamently stored. Sighing greetings Reiner

Great plugin. I thought I was already very good with shortcuts before using this, but it feels like I learn a new one every day now. Highly recommended.

installed the latest plugin to intellij 11. It seems the plugin doesn't store config so I have to reconfigure every time I start intellij. Anyone has the same issue?

Quite usefull plugin .. taught me quite a few new keys already - thanks a lot.

There seems to be a problem in Idea 11 on Linux though - the plugin configuration is never saved properly => I need to remove the ugly default colors and borders (and rediculous font sizes) every time I open IDE, which is quite annoying.

I have a feature request:
The plugin seems to store data for each GUI item already (e.g. counter, how many times the item already has been used by click).

Would be nice, if it could also store an ignore flag and provide an option (in settings as well as in the popups themselves) to remove certain GUI items from promotion.

Thanks for consideration!

Great plugin!

But v1.0.10 (my first try) sometimes hangups IDEA11 IU-111.69...

New version in progress, will be available next week and compatible with 10.5 and 11

On Idea 10.5.2, I cannot get this plugin to do anything (running on both OSX 10.7.2 and Windows 7). Is some configuration action necessary to activate it, or is the compatibily issue with Idea X?

scratch the last comment. I changed the project workspace and its going now.

Could have been that i was clicking on things that didnt have a keyboard shortcut so nothing was displayed.

all things with a keyboard shortcut are being displayed now and i even noticed that keypromoter noticed when i was using a menu item without a shortcut many times and prompted me to create a short cut for it, cool.

"Would you like to assign shortcut to 'Show information about IntelliJ IDEA' action cause we noticed it was used 3 time(s) by mouse?"

os: kubuntu 10.04 64bit
PhpStorm 1.0
build PS-95.192

Im not seeing anything with this plugin installed.

What i expected to see was that when i clicked on a menu item such as 'help' that somewhere the keyboard equivalent for that action would be displayed (alt+h)

I see nothing. help opens with the click as usual.

Is there anything that needs to be done to activate the plugin?

Installed through the built in plugin installer.

Love the idea to help me get better with using keyboard shortcuts instead of mouse clicks.
