    I have tried CTRL + Q and it was not working. So I have found in the Edit menu, CTRL + '
    but it won't work

    I don't find the way to insert breakpoints (not bookmark, I've read)

    did you try clicking in the grey border next to the line number to set a breakpoint? (It is the same method as in VB6/VBA/.NET)

    @sorex : I due you many thanks : I was clicking the white part next to the lines numbers...

    It subsists the CTRL + ' shortcut but I hope I know pressing the keys ;)

    indeed, CTRL-Q doesn't work and CTRL-' doesn't either

    CTRL-Q should make more sense than CTRL-' as other editors use that shortcut for commenting aswell.

    Ctrl + ' is similar to Eclipse Ctrl + / (Java comment character).

    There is a problem with this character on some keyboards as it is not a standard character. I will add Ctrl + Q as a shortcut as well.

    CTRL+Q and CTRL+W is very usefull to me too.

    For me, the big advantage of Ctrl-Q and Ctrl-W are that they can be done with the left hand without taking my right hand off the mouse.

    Seems minor, but makes a difference for a frequently used shortcut.

    As I wrote above Ctrl + Q will be available in the next update.
