Description Chris Hamons 2013-04-29 11:16:20 UTC
Hitting space with a breakpoint selected brings you to the line, different that Visual Studio. That isn't a bug (althought I wish it did the same). However, when you mouse over enable\disable you find the keyboard shortcut of command+shift+/ 

I try hitting that with a selection in the breakpoint window and a "search" dialog pops up with a unicode character typed in. I hit enter and I get into the breakpoint window with a row selected. I then can hit space to enable/disable a breakpoint but if you double tab spacebar you "break" out of this mode and jump to the breakpoint in the editor.

Please give me a way to enable/disable breakpoints via the keyboard.

Looks like the keyboard shortcut is actually Alt+Command+/, although that is a bit awkward to hit since you have to use Fn+Option to get Alt.

I've updated the keyboard handler to accept Spacebar as a toggle keyboard shortcut for enabling/disabling selected breakpoints which makes it work like Visual Studio.

Jeff, Opt and Alt are just different names for the same key on MacOS, Fn-Opt doesn't combine into anything else. Opt+Cmd+/ works fine for me.

okay, my mistake
