MD shows Press shift+space for focus for all comments.
Comment 1 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2011-07-27 10:02:12 UTC
I do not understand this bug report, where does MD show "Press shift+space for focus for all comments", and what makes this a bug?

It's a feature that allows to scroll inside the tooltips - that was requested some time ago. Ok for empty tooltips I shouldn't show it.

I fixed the part with the empty text.
Comment 4 Marek Safar 2011-08-02 05:37:25 UTC
Is this feature documented anywhere ? How can I use it ?
Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2011-08-02 08:33:42 UTC
the feature isn't documented - you just have to press shift + space - that's all.

(ok: somehow this doesn't work anymore on my mac ... seems that somebody played around with the keyboard input :( )

Reopening as I have no idea what it should do and it still does nothing on my machine.

Pressing shift-space when the tooltip is visible throws an NRE now.

We should fix this or remove it.

The NRE causes a crash.
Comment 10 Mike Krüger 2011-11-16 09:41:35 UTC
how did you get the NRE ? 

It's crashing, yes but shift+space didn't work for me ... the key input system is badly broken/needs work, the shift modifier wasn't given to the text editor - was filtered out before, at least on mac. That's why you shouldn't have come that far.

I now use the F2 key for it - because that is the key eclipse uses. It's a feature taken from eclipse and I don't think it hurts - we should take eclipse users serious - java is a big market and eclipse is the most widely used IDE.

Now it's fixed & key changed to F2.

We have verified this issue with MonoDevelop 2.8.5 and MonoTouch 5.0.4,it is not throwing an error after pressing 'Shift+space' when tooltip appears.

So kindly close this issue.
