Description Petr Dvorak 2008-07-17 16:23:48 UTC
Go to Tools>Options, select Java Code, formatting Tab. Choose Wrapping from the combobox. There are 2 conflicts of

1. &Assert ~ Method Call &Arguments
2. Assi&gnment Operators ~ Cate&gory
Comment 1 Dusan Balek 2008-07-25 12:06:57 UTC
After the recent changes to the Formatting Options dialog, it is very hard to find any mnemonics combination without
conflicts. Ondro, do we need mnemonics in Formatting Options dialog?

Comment 3 Dusan Balek 2008-07-25 12:13:30 UTC
Also go to Tools>Options, select Java Code, formatting Tab. Choose "Blank Lines" from the combobox. There is a conflict of

After i&mports ~ Before &method
Comment 4 Ondrej Langr 2008-07-25 13:31:38 UTC
I suggest to simply remove mnemonics from:

Method Call &Arguments in "Wrapping" category
Assignment Operators in "Wrapping" category
After I&mports in "Blank Lines" category

This suggestion is based on Nb mnemonic rules (
"When it is not feasible to provide mnemonics for all dialog box components, mnemonics can be skipped for less important
components if they can be easily and logically reached by tab traversal."
