Dear Experts,

I'm fairly new to Eclipse.  Does it allow macros?  

In particular, once I've highlighted a variable name, I'd like to press one key sequence and do this:

Go to top of file
Find next of that name


Thanks!

You can define the key bindings in eclipse as

Windows->Preferences->General->Keys

Thanks, but can I do a several-step process, like:

Select the highlighted word
Open the Find window
Go to top of file
Find next

?

ya you can do that too. When you select a word, it would be picked up by search dialog. It starts searching from that cursor position onwards, this can be controlled by checking to find foward/backword and wrapping the search.

Ctrl+k/Ctrl+Shift+K searches next and previous keyward (as default setting of eclipse)

As far as I know,

You can't do that and I am interested to see it if anyone has some idea on how to do it.

I've done other research, and it's looking like this is one place where Eclipse falls down.  It doesn't seem to have a macro capability per se.  I'll leave the question open another day to see if I'm missing something...

To Ajay-Singh:  Thank you for your responses.  In this case, though, I'm obliged to accept suprapto45's comment.  Your answers were helpful, but I'm specifically asking about record-macro capabilities here, which seem to be absent altogether in Eclipse.
