Description zikmund 2004-05-18 10:22:41 UTC
I'd prefer to set the shorcut back to F5 (from now
Shift-F6) as in NB3.6.

In my opinion most developers use debugger - and
those users runs projects in debugger more often
than without (especially in the development phase
when they are debugging).

F5 shortcut has these advantages:
1) no shift, crtl, alt = easy to press
2) it's easily reachable on the classic keyboard
(first key in the group F5-F8)
3) same as in previous versions of IDE

On the other side I can't see any advantages of
the Shift-F6 shortcut. Any comments?

Fixed in the spec (also already implemented).
