Re: OS X Keybindings


These are the standard key bindings that all Mac text editors use.  If
you really want Windows-style key bindings for the "Home" and "End"
keys you can edit (after making a backup copy, of course)
/Applications/Mathematica
5.1.app/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources/Macintosh/KeyEventTranslations.tr,
changing the following two lines:

Item[KeyEvent["Home"], "ScrollNotebookStart"],
Item[KeyEvent["End"], "ScrollNotebookEnd"],

to:

Item[KeyEvent["Home"], "MoveLineBeginning"],
Item[KeyEvent["End"], "MoveLineEnd"],

alt-left and alt-right (where alt is the option key on Mac keyboards)
should work the way you describe by default (they certainly do for me).
