Re: Generated JavaDoc to code insight?

It seems that you are mixing the CtrlQ and ShiftF1 functionality, while the difference is as follows:
1. The ShiftF1 key combination opens the browser with the JavaDoc for
the item at which the caret is currently positioned (you even don't need to highlight it). Any generated JavaDocs can be available with this
feature, by adding their paths to the "JavaDoc API Paths" tab of the
"Project Properties | Paths" dialog.
2. The CtrlQ key combination opens the IDEA window with the JavaDoc
comments that are generated in runtime directly from the sources available within your project. This means that is you have the JDK sources added to your sourcepath, their JavaDoc comments will also be available with the CtrlQ combination. Any class, method or field created by you and supplied with the JavaDoc comments (no matter whether
you have compiled the source code or not) will be immediately available
with this feature.
