installing PyDev breaks many existing shortcuts of the Java perspective on the mac.
To clarify, I am aware of the fact that it is perfectly fine when pydev defines its own shortcuts for inside of the pydev perspective.
However, when I switch back to the Java perspective, then not all of the Java shortcuts are restored.
As an example, the standard shortcut for "Rename" on the Mac is command+alt+R
That short cut is erased after installing pydev, so I can not access rename via the keyboard,
neither in the PyDev perspective nor in the Java perspective.
Another example: command+F9 activates a Mylyn Task, and that shortcut sometimes gets restored when switching back to the Java perspective,
sometimes it does not.
In summary, while I like PyDev a lot, this is just too annoying, as it makes the Java perspective to annoying to use.
And Java is my main reason for using Eclipse....
As a quick fix, I tried having to Eclipse installations, and uninstalling pydev from one, but sharing the same eclipse working dir creates problems. I will need to see if I can find another kind of work-around.
