Description Unknown 2002-04-22 21:43:35 UTC
Summary pretty much says it all.

It would be really nice if I could set the key bindings such that I could 
navigate the curser in a document with emacs-friendly key strokes.

Thanks again for all the awesome hard work!

SBA->Steven: Don't know what you mean. Try again. "Step by step for
dummies" of what you get and expect would leave no question.

Reassigned to Christian.

I have the same problem.  At the very least, I'd like to be able to use CTRL-F, CTRL-B, CTRL-N, CTRL-P, CTRL-A, and CTRL-E for cursor movement. Those keys translate to cursor-right, cursor-left, cursor-up, cursor-down, Home, and End.

In addition, the following would be useful:  CTRL-D = Delete, CTRL-V = Page-Down, ALT-V = Page-up.

Comment 3 alanh 2002-09-24 20:54:26 UTC
Whoops, I messed up.

CTRL-N is Cursor-Down  (mneumonic:  Next Line)

CTRL-P is Cursor-Up    (Previous Line)

CTRL-F is Cursor-Right (forward)

CTRL-B is Cursor-Left  (back)
