Using Keyboard Shortcuts makes you a lot more efficient compared to using your mouse. But how to learn all shortcuts in an unobstructive and efficient way?

Users of Sigasi Studio and Eclipse have certainly noticed the subtle pop-ups with the keyboard shortcut, every time you click a button or menu item. These pop-ups help you to form the good habit of using keyboard shortcuts.
