Day three of my brand new job - woohoo! One of my first tasks is checking the documentation
of IntelliJ, since I’m
already a “Power User”, to see if there’s stuff missing that someone like me might want to see. Firstly, a confession -
I’m not sure I’ve actually read the IntelliJ documentation before. I mean, really read it. Of course, I’ve dipped
into it when I needed to know something, I’ve searched for help with specific items, but like many developers, I tend to
use something first rather than read the documentation first.
But I’ll tell you what, today I’ve learnt a whole bunch of useful things IntelliJ can do that I hadn’t previously known,
and they’re the sorts of things you would only stumble over if a) you read the docs (pah!) or b) you watched someone
else using the tool and saw them doing something you didn’t know was possible.
