    First of all, thanks alot for making pydev, it is really nice.

    I'd like to point out that I'm a newbie to eclipse, so my problems could be related to this.

    I have one small problem. When debugging, I can put out breakpoints in my code by double-clicking in the gutter  to the left of the edit area. However, when I'm visiting a .java-file in java-mode I can also put in a breakpoint by visiting menu Run -> Toggle line breakpoint (bound to Ctrl + Shift + b) by default. This alternative is greyed out in the Run-menu when I enter a python-file, which also means that there is no short-cut key bound to set breakpoint.

    Is there a reason for this, is it a bug or am I simply missing something?

      This is actually a feature request... pydev does not support  this at this time.

      However, if you want to use your keyboard to set it, you can use Ctrl+F10 and it will show options for adding/removing a breakpoint.

      cheers,

      Fabio

        Ah, so there is a keyboard shortcut. Great, thanks!

        Is this a standard eclipse shortcut? Otherwise, maybe this could be mentioned in the FAQ section on keyboard shortcuts.

          Yes, that's a standard eclipse shortcut.

          Anyway, I will add it to the FAQ.

          cheers,
