Xcode File Navigation Shortcuts

Two of my most-used keyboard shortcuts in Xcode must be ⌘-Shift-O (Open Quickly) and ⌘-Shift-J (Reveal in Project Navigator).

I love being able to search for any file or type or even method, and open it immediately. Open Quickly is a great underrated feature of Xcode.

Reveal in Project Navigator is really useful because it lets me quickly browse related files, rather than having to navigate the directory structure manually.

A really cool website for little snippets of Xcode goodness like this is Here are the related entries for these two features:
