Everyone likes to increase their productivity and everyone has their own favourite productivity hacks, but not everyone agrees! In this blog, Ryan will talk about their top three Android Studio shortcuts and how they're better than the rest.

Change Signature


Pressing cmd+F6 on a method will open a dialog to change that methods signature.

Safely refactor a method signature, previewing all changes of client calls before applying a change.

Additional shortcuts in dialog:

alt+up : move parameter up

alt+down : move parameter down

cmd+n : add a new parameter

backspace : remove parameter

alt+r : apply refactor

alt+p : preview changes

Run Configuration


This shortcut brings up a simple run dialog.

Useful if you like to code in distraction free mode, no need to exit distraction free to select / edit a specific run configuration.

To open the debug variant it is ctrl+alt+d. A downside is you can't attach the debugger this way as far as I can tell. For that, I need to search for the action.

Navigate between files


This shortcut will show a small dialog to navigate between recently opened files.

Great for distraction free mode, no need to have more than one window on the code. Plus no need to open a side panel to navigate between files.

I find this a bit cumbersome but ctrl+tab+shift will navigate to the previous file.
