As a regular Eclipse user I found it very useful to adapt keyboard shortcuts to match the Eclipse ones (Such as this one: How do I make Notepad++ delete lines like Eclipse does?)

However, as manually changing all shortcuts is kind of tiring and not always sucessful I wondered whether there is an config available that matches Eclipse shortcuts as closely as possible.

If the settings can be exported, if you're lucky maybe someone has already done this and shared the results for others to benefit. – Karan Oct 25 '12 at 9:08
They can be exported, but someone needs to make a mapping between the Eclipse keywords, and the scintilla/notepad++ keywords for those shortcuts. Not that complicated ultimately, but time consuming. – Gnoupi Oct 25 '12 at 9:25
That's why I asked here before doing work that might already have been accomplished by someone else. – Seppl Oct 25 '12 at 15:47

Did you try searching for Custom Notepad++ Keyboard Shortcuts?

Have a look at this link

This is a comment rather than an answer, and the link does not appear to provide any specific information that addresses the question. – fixer1234 Dec 11 '14 at 5:34

You can export your current Eclipse keyboard-mapping
(choose from the menu: Window > Preferences > General > Keys > [Export CSV...])
but the "Commands" there are not necessarily named the same in Notepad++.

Also, at the moment (v6.8.8), the Shortcut Mapper in Notepad++ is lacking basic functionality
to sort or find existing actions and their related shortcuts,
not to mention saving/loading shortcut-mappings
(see this discussion in the community for example).

I have tracked my mapping-changes to be saved to this location (in Windows-7) -
which gives me basic ability to copy my shortcut-mappings from one PC to another...
