When you're working with large projects it helps to have really good navigation commands that allow you to open virtually any file without hunting for it in the file manager. There are many such commands in PyCharm. These commands are platform specific, so the commands for Windoes, Mac, and Linux are all different. In PyCharm there is a help command that shows you all the commands. Learn how to double shift to find any method signature or variable in your code, and Ctrl-Shift-N to open any file.
- [Instructor] Before we go any further,…I want to show you…some of the navigation features in PyCharm.…These are the features really that keep me coming back.…Now, we don't have a particularly large project right now.…But eventually, all of these projects…tend to grow and grow and grow.…And eventually you find yourself…with tens or hundreds or perhaps even thousands…of files in a project.…And it can get really, really difficult…to keep track of them all,…let alone navigate to those quickly.…If I were limited only to finding things in the hierarchy,…the project hierarchy over on the left,…then that would really slow me down.…
So what I'm going to do…is I'm going to close all of these documents.…I'm going to come up to any of these tabs here.…And I'm going to right-click.…And I'm going to select Close All.…And PyCharm is going to give me a little bit of help…right off the bat.…The screen that it shows you with no files open…is going to give you…some of the most useful keyboard shortcuts…that are in the program.…These shortcuts are going to be specific to the platform…
