Re: Select text with keyboard?

Its Index has 25 entries under those two headings. The entry for "selections, extending or shrinking" points to page 109 and the entry for "selections, scrolling after" points to page 52. Apple did things right and documented them meticulously in those days -- as did Mathematica.
