I'm looking for a complete list of Remix IDE shortcuts. (Little things make a big difference, and I'm a big fan of efficiency). Through trial and error, here's what I found so far:

  • Opt+Up/Down: Move line up/down
  • CMD+D: Delete line
  • CTR+OPT+Up/Down: Multicursor (super useful)

I would love to be able to CMD+D to highlight word like in Sublime. I've tried searching for Remix IDE shortcuts, searched the doc, but found nothing...

Anybody have their own list or know of a source? Thanks!

Remix uses the Brace Editor package (Github) for its editor window, so shortcuts are inherited from there.

Brace supports both emacs and vim keybindings. (I'm assuming the examples in your question are actually either emacs/vim shortcuts.)

Back in Remix, the .addCommand() method calls in editor.js add a few extra shortcuts on top.


My emacs/vim chops are well out of date, so here's another method...

To edit all occurences of a given string:

  • Ctrl+f to open the "Find" window
  • Enter the string
  • Alt+Enter to highlight all instances
  • Type the new string
  • What do you mean by "Back in Remix, the .addCommand() method calls in editor.js add a few extra shortcuts on top." Can you elaborate? If you could just help me find out how to select all occurrences of a selected word, that would be great!

  • I've edited my answer. What I meant was, Remix inherits various keybindings from the Brace package, but then Remix itself adds some extra keybindings on top (as per the code in editor.js). May 21, 2021 at 20:48
