Tutorial got stuck

I'm using build 156 and I'm stuck with the tutorial at a very early stage:

while trying to select the "constant" cell model after creating the editor

and selecting "collection(horizontal)". The 'Node cell layout' looks like

[> << ... >> <]

the last <] is gray. In the Inspector a < cell collection > is displayed

with the properties 'cell layout', 'actions' and 'keymap' having red

borders, the last two ones also a red background. I'm absolutely clueless,

where the caret is, pressing Ctrl-Space does not allow to complete anything.

Hoping for help,

Tom

OK, forgot to select "<< ... >>" and press Ctrl-Enter.

Could you please preselect "<< ... >>" instead of "<]" so Ctrl-Enter works

directly after completing "collection(horizontal)"?

Strange, I am using build 160 and I cannot go beyond this point: even selecting << ... >> Ctrl+Space doesn't work.

What can I do? I am stuck.

TIA

Giuliano

Ctrl-Enter or Insert (but not Ctrl-Space)

Oh my God!

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

Sorry, I really need to take a break (and use less Eclipse) :-)

Thanks a lot

Ok, I am stupid, but what is the logic behind using CtrlSpace sometimes and CtrlEnter or Ctrl+Insert some other times? Which is the rule of thumb in terms of usability that I may use to remember (apart from trying in one way, if it fails trying the other way).

TIA

I think:

Ctrl+Enter creates a new element within a collection (collections are marked with << ... >>>)

Ctrl+Space shows the completion suggestions for an element

Ctrl-Space is generally CHANGE selected node (AKA auto-complete/substitute)

Itesrt,Ctrl-Enter(also double/triple.. Ctrl-Enter),Enter - ADD new node

this is a rule of thumb that I may try to remember.

double/triple? Can you explain?

Hi, Rob

CtrlEnterEnter... - inserts new node into higher level parent.

for instance, if current selection is argument in a method invocation experssion, then:

Ctrl-Enter - inserts new argument (expression)

Ctrl-Enter-Enter - inserts new statement after current statement.

and so on.

hi Piergiuliano,

Strange, I am using build 160 and I cannot go beyond

this point: even selecting << ... >> Ctrl+Space

doesn't work.

In fact it is quite natural to try to replace cell

<< ... >> with something else using Ctrl-Space.

It will work in next build.

Tanx!
