Shortcuts for simple editing


Using the IDEA keyboard scheme and can't find the following actions in Resharper C++:

  • "Shift + Enter" Start new line (this can be used inside current line to start a new line with indentation)
  • "Ctrl + Shift + Enter" Complete statement (used to put ; at the end of expression)

Is it possible to configure these actions for corresponding shortcuts?

"Start new line" is a builtin Visual Studio command Edit.LineOpenBelow. It's bound by default to "Ctrl + Shift + Enter", but you can rebind it to "Shift + Enter" in the "Tools | Options | Environment | Keyboard" dialog.

"Complete statement" is not yet implemented for C++. Please vote for!

Thanks for quick response!

But this builtin action doesn't indent the new line, so the cursor is placed at the very beginning of the line. Using MSVC 2010 with Resharper C++ 2016.3

Voted for the "Complete statement".

Yes, unfortunately looks like it'll indent the line only in VS2012 and later. Hopefully this use case will be mostly covered by "Complete statement" when it's implemented.
