Method Callers in Xcode 4.4

I love that I can see the callers of a method in Xcode!

From the Find and Search Additions section of the New Features in Xcode 4.4 documentation, it says:

"...function is accessed from the Show Related Items menu, or by using the Assistant editor and selecting Callers or Callees in the jump bar pop-up menu..."

So how does one easily popup the Show Related Items menu? Press Control-1 aka ^1 and you will see "Callers(x)" where x = the number of methods calling the method.

There is also the comprehensive Xcode Keyboard Shortcuts and Gestures documentation which covers multi-touch gestures and other shortcuts.

Enjoy this feature while you explore your code!
