Scan your source easily

No more constantly pressing Shift+F4.

This tip is very simple, but it's probably one of the best time-savers I've ever used.

I've remapped my '`' button in the upper left portion of the keypad to act as F16. I am always searching for strings while in my source code and it was always very annoying to constantly press Shift+F4.

Simply replace the '`' character with [pf16] on your keyboard mapping. It takes a day or two to get used to.
