What is this?

This tool aims to help software developers find most suitable keyboard shortcuts for given action. Select an 'action' and this page will list most used shortcuts for that action.

Sure, you don't have to follow conventions for every action in your application, but if you'd like to prefer familiar key combinations, hopefully this page will help you.

How it works under the hood?

By using so called "Fuzzy match" text comparison, similar shortcuts actions for each action are calculated in the background and stored in the database earlier. As this is a intensive process (comparing every shortcut line to every other line), if a comparison isn't made yet, a less accurate and faster method will be used ('SOUNDEX' function of MS SQL server). This is always indicated on the page.
