I've found the WebStorm reference Card (http://www.jetbrains.com/webstorm/documentation/WebStorm_ReferenceCard.pdf) and believe this will be benefiial as a refernce, but first I would like to understand the basics and dig more into the advance things.
Just before I submited this post I found the following video on JetBrains webiste. This information is great, but limited. The very first tip that the presenter (John Lindquist) showed was how to auto-complete a src path in HTML; this was what I was looking for. He mentioned that [ctrl]+[space] will show all the files in the current path and then he mentioned that [ctrl]+[space]+[space] will display all the JS files in the project. After seeing this, I referred to the WebStorm Reference Card, but there was no reference to the shortcut. How do I learn about these basic feature? The title of the video is "Power Answers - Speed Tricks", but this seems like basic information that any HTML developer would need to know to be productive with WebStorm.

I need to see some progress in my productivity using WebStorm to justify using WebStorm instead of Visual Studio.
What resource are there to learn the basics or WebStorm?
I finally found some basics for WebStorm.
It would have been nice if I didn't have to find the previous link on my own. As a beginner with WebStorm there seems to be a need for a tutorial or something that beginners could use to get started. I was almost to the point of giving up on WebStorm and just use Visual Studio. But I'm glad I didn't. Finding the link above helped greatly in providing me an understand of how to do some simple things in WebStorm.
Also come to find out, the [ctrl]+[space] was the first item on the WebStorm Reference Card.
We are trying to make our products self-explaining and intuitive:) But we have some resources with tutorials and documentation:
http://wiki.jetbrains.net/intellij/#Tutorials - common IntelliJ tutorials, not only WebStorm, please take a look
http://blog.jetbrains.com/webstorm/ - announces, feature presentation etc.
http://www.jetbrains.com/webstorm/webhelp/webstorm.html - documentation
If you have any questions, please ask here.
I am also a C# .NET developer who is using and LOVES Webstorm 6.0.1 and is very new to it. I'll never use VS for JS debugging, this is too helpful and amazing of a product and VS or other tools pale badly in comparison. I don't think there's been any tool that's gotten me this excited, not even VS itself. This thing is just unreal.
Anyway I struggled with some of the basics also sucha s setting up debugging. I finally got that down, and it's not hard, you just have to know how to do it and yes I agree WS docs don't tell you the basics as far as "assumptions" go. They assume you know certain things and I feel they should go deeper at the start starting with someone who knows nothing about debugging in webstorm or lets even go to the point of debugging in a browser and js which I do but point being WS needs to have a SET of docs and videos in their help section that are labeled "Very Basic" or something that preceeds what they have now.
With that if you have questions on debugging, I know enough to be productive...just reply here and I'll try and help if I can.
I'm gonna be blogging about WS stuff eventually, once I can find time to get it hosted again.
And Mike given the fact that I had tried out the latest R# EAP last, it was causing issues in Visual Studio whereas the debugging was just not working as expected with MSTests. So..I reverted back to R#7. Point being do not try EAPs. They'll f you up . I learned the hard way by wasting 2 days on a problem that ulitmately boiled down to me forgetting I had tried the new EAP and by removing and re-installing R#7 that was the entire issue. EAPs are just that, they STILL have a lot of bugs, no matter what anyone tells you.
So, I would not use the EAP for Webstorm, that's just my opinion.
