I am more used to typing then using the mouse. I was wondering if there were hotkeys for the drop down list and the info button?

What I mean is what I have marked in the picture below.

Array drop down Array drop down

When I type open square bracket it appears, and I can press the down arrow to get the list. But I can't make it reappear without deleting characters, and I don't know how to trigger the information button.

Can anyone point me to how to do this?

To open the help page just place the cursor somewhere within the function name and press F1.
To get the template list use the following shortcut Ctrl+Shift+k.
More keyboard shortcuts can be found here.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for that. OSX that appears to map to Fn+F1 and Cmd+Shift+k . $\endgroup$ Jul 22, 2014 at 10:34
