Favorite Xcode Shortcuts (an ever-expanding list)

This post has been a long time coming. And yet, it has not come. A shortcut here or there does not seem to merit a post entire, but the collective impact of each of these shortcuts has been of such deep and lasting workflow importance that overlooking it is surely a crime.

Solution: start the Journey of 1,000 Steps post, and add to it as new awesomeness comes to my attention.

Jumping Right In:

  • Expand/Collapse all folders/search results in the navigator panel: ⌘ + click the triangle (rather than click).
  • Expand/Collapse all curly-braced code in an editor panel: ⌘ + ⌥ + ⇧ + ← or →

My criteria, so far, include shortcuts that are part of your regular workflow, but are not [readily] visible on drop-down menus. As always, suggestions more than welcome!
