Jim Pickering's idea. Posting on his behalf.

When text is pre-selected, then existing ctrl+/ behavior is helpful.  However..

When -no- text is selected, then ctrl+/ should:
1) place // left-of-cursor (not flush-left at gutter)
2) shift cursor 1 space to the right

Sounds interesting. We will not be able to take this up for this release but can look into it for the next release.

Hi Vamseekrishna, Understandable and thanks very much for considering! Basically, ctrl+/ would add // in the same manner ctrl+shift+8 adds /**/ when no text is selected. Thanks!, -Aaron
