    IDE shortcuts

    In VB6 (and earlier), I could jump right to a control property by
    pressing Ctrl+Alt+(first letter) while the control had the focus in the
    form designer. I could also move focus between controls by using the
    tab or arrow keys. I can't seem to do this in .NET.

    Has anyone been able to get these turned back on - or is this
    functionality that is simply no longer available? Thanks,

    Re: IDE shortcuts

    And as long as I'm looking for my old, useful shortcuts, I used to be
    able to go from one routine to another in the code window using Ctrl+Up
    & Ctrl+Down. These no longer seem to work - are there any alternatives?
    Thanks again,

    Try the:

    Tools>Options>Environment>Keyboard Menu. You can do just about anything
    from here including emulating VB6.

    Greg,

    I could not reproduce this property jumping behavior in VB6. Can you walk me
    through it?

    Thanks Eric - I did turn VB6 emulation on, but it still doesn't seem to
    get me back to the VB6 shortcuts I mentioned. I'll have to try digging
    into it more - at least there's a possibility!

    Kathleen:
    If I've got a form with some controls, and a textbox control on the form
    currently has the focus, if I press Ctrl-Alt-T, it takes me to the
    TabIndex property, followed by the TabStop, Tag, & Text properties. If
    I press Ctrl-Alt-N, it takes me to the (Name) property, Ctrl-Alt-H takes
    me too Height, etc. Of course once the focus is over in the properties
    window, I can also just press up/down, PgUp, PgDn to move around.

    In .NET, this doesn't work, even if I'm already in the Properties Window
    (it does work there in VB6 as well). I've found it a nice way to move
    wuickly to where I want to go. I tend to NOT like having to take my
    hands off my keyboard to use the mouse to change focus.
