Hotkeys

From TED Notepad
Jump to: navigation, search
This section is up to date for TED Notepad version 6.1.1.0.

This is an almost complete listing of TED Notepad hotkeys. Tools' hotkeys are not included here at all, and hotkeys that are usual for all edit-boxes in Windows, such as basic navigation, common movement and trivial text selecting. Of course, TED Notepad replicates all clasic Notepad navigation, movement and text selecting hotkeys and principles.

Note: This listing does not contain hotkeys implied by the system or added from out-of-borders of TED Notepad.

Moving through text (edit)


Home Moves the caret to the indentation of the currnet line. If hit again, moves to the beginning of the current unwrapped line.
Note: This behaviour can be turned off in the Settings by the Disable smart Home key on the Edit page.
   
End Moves the caret to the last character of the currnet wrapped line. If hit again, moves to the end of the current line. If hit again, moves to the end of the current unwrapped line.
Note: It might seem (visually) that there is no difference between the first and the second hit of this key. In reality, however, there is a difference in moving up and down to other lines from this position. While after the first hit "a visual horizontal position" is kept, after the second hit "the end of any line" is respected. In other words, by the second hit, the user forces the caret to stay at the end of lines while moving the cursor up and down.
