Navigate the Maze of the End-User Experience and pick up this APM Essential guide, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies

If you have multiple domain objects and controllers in your Grails application, like here:

After setting shortcuts like the above, when you have a domain open, press the shortcut "Go to Grails Controller" and then the related controller class will open. Same the other way round. Also, even if the domain isn't open, but only selected in the tree view, the controller will open when you press the "Go to Grails Controller" shortcut. Same applies to views, which can also be thrown into the mix as you can see from the screenshot.
