So what happens is that every now and then I’m surprised by a colleague with shortcuts in SAP/ABAP which I didn’t know of. With this blog I want to share some of them.
Duplicate rows (CTRL + D)
This is one of the most recent discoveries of shortcuts. Just put your cursor on a line in the ABAP editor and press CTRL + D, and duplicate the row.
Vertical text selection (ALT + selection)
This feature comes in quite handy for several actions, I use it to outline code and selecting parts of code.
Delete line (CTRL + SHIFT + L)
Ofcourse this speaks, as almost every shortcut, for itself. This will delete the whole line where the cursor is placed.
Jump to control field (CTRL + /)
This shortcut will jump the cursor back to the control field (the field where you type your transactions).
Please feel free to add your most used shortcuts in the comments.
