If for whatever reason a lot of your work gets done in Flash IDE and you're working on the open-source Eclipse Flash development platform, it may get seriously annoying to seek for that tiny Run button on the Eclipse toolbar.

To hook up Cmd + Enter* in Eclipse, do the following:

  1. Open the Preferences of your Eclipse IDE
  2. Locate General > Keys
  3. Type Run in the field with type filter text tip in it
  4. Scroll down and find the Run command,  it should display Shift + Cmd + F11 by default
  5. Click Unbind Command
  6. Click the Binding field and Cmd + Enter to set the new shortcut
  7. Click Apply and Ok to finish

* the guide applies to Mac OS X version of Eclipse, but can easily deployed for Ctrl + Enter on Windows (or Linux).
