    Hi Vladimir,

    First of all, I love the ease of making custom hotkeys in TWS, and its customizability in general. I would love the addition of a Duplicate Line (or duplicate previous line) hotkey.

    This is currently one of the only bells/whistles that the Eclipse IDE has that TWS does not in terms of the environment. I find it very useful.

    Also, enabling Macros with a macro explorer to allow users to create their own hotkeys (rather than only being able to choose from built-in commands) would be another solution to this and other super-customized hotkeys.

    Thanks for being so responsive to our requests! Love your team.

      Hi Brent,

      Thanks for your kind feedback! It is very important for us.

      Also thanks you for sharing your idea with us - this helps us a lot to do the best IDE.

      If I understand you correctly - after pressing some hotkey a new line is inserted below the current one with duplicated content?

      Just out of curious can you please share some use cases for this so we can understand it clearer and maybe think of something else to improve.

        Yes, after pressing some hotkey a new line is inserted below the current one with duplicated content.

        Use case example: writing a series of similar System.debug or System.assert messages which have the same basic structure on consecutive lines.

          In Notepad++, for example, Ctrl-D duplicates the current line and inserts it into a new line below

            Hi Brent,

            I want to inform you that the ‘Duplicate the current line’ option is already implemented in The Welkin Suite.

            Use the following hotkeys:

            • CTRL + ALT + A to duplicate and insert above the current line
            • CTRL + ALT + B to duplicate and insert below the current line

            Enjoy the developing with TWS.
