Execute and Format code

Executing code in your scripts can be very easy with shortcuts.

  • Ctrl + Enter – Will run current line and jump to the next one, or run selected part without jumping further.
  • Alt + Enter – Allows running code without moving the cursor to the next line if you want to run one line of code multiple times without selecting it.
  • There is also Ctrl + Alt + R to run whole script and
  • Ctrl + Alt + B/E combinations to run it from Beginning to the current line and from the current line to the End.

  • Ctrl + Shift + A for complete reformat of the selected part of a code
