Keyboard shortcut to cut line [message #298649] Thu, 02 February 2006 05:44 Go to next message

Is there a keyboard shortcut in Eclipse to cut a line?
Can I assign a key combination to do this?

Ctrl-D works well if you just want the line gone but it does not help if
you want to paste it somewhere else.

alt-arrows works ok if you are only moving a couple lines away in the same
editor but it is inconvenient most of the time

I got used to the speed of vi, this is the one feature I miss the most.

As a work-around is there a keyboard shortcut to select the current line
no matter where you are in it?

My current method is cumbersome:
1. press home key

2. Shift-End
3. Ctrl-X

There has to be a better way?

thank you.

The 'Cut Line' command exists but is not bound out of the box. You can
assign a key binding on the 'Keys' preference page. The command is in
the 'Text Editing' category.

Very nice tip.

It took me a while and googling to find out the "Keys" page. So just adding just in-case someone might need it.

My eclipse version: Eclipse Mars

Go to Menu "Window > Preferences > General > Keys".

Search for "Cut Line" and set binding of your choice. In my case I did "Alt + X".
In drop down for When I chose "In Windows" (which was default)

Paste was already setup.
