Eclipse gives tool tips for errors and warnings in your code. Like most tooltips, these take a few seconds to popup.

However, I've found myself fairly frustrated by the speed it takes for them to show up and am wondering if anyone knows if there's a hot key to get them to pop up quickly. Or a suggestion on how to get the auto fixes to show up quicker in general would be great.

I often refactor large pieces of my code and could really use the auto fixers if they were faster.


F2 works for me, but the cursor has to be in the code object, or it has to be highlighted (i.e. it doesn't work while hovering).

Still, a click and a keystroke seems faster to me than waiting for the tooltip to appear.
