How to show tooltip description in Android Studio?

The key in my Eclipse(ADT linux):

'Name': 'Show Tooltip Description'
'Description': 'Displays information for the current caret location in a focused hover'
'Binding' : 'F2'

Any similar key in Android Studio?


You can use Ctrl + Q to show the quick javadoc of current caret location.

If you want it on hover go to

File > Settings > Editor

and tick the checkbox "Show quick doc on mouse move". You can also set the time delay after hover to make sure just moving cursor in editor doesn't show the javadocs.


As per comments

Alt + Enter can be used for Quick Fixes in Android Studio, It will give you drop down for possible fixes same like in Eclipse.
