Subject Component adding hotkeys
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2015 12:49:28 GMT
I think it's a nice idea, we have same the same feedback.

For me it should be in core once linux issue is fixed, what about tested
- Windows 8? 7 ?
- Linux
- Mac OSX ? which os ?

Regarding other questions, answers inline.

Somewhere where Search Feature and templates are documented

I would remove or put them at end:
View Results Tree
User Defined Variables
Test Fragment

as although popular you rarely add more than 2 or 3.

I would add :
- Css/JQuery extractor
- Jsr223 Post processor
- Test Action for the timer discussion we had
- JSR223 Pre processir
-Debug Sampler

There are name shortcuts in
