Re: Tab and Cursor Arrow Key Bindings


FYI - Upgrading from 6.0.2 to 6.0.3 fixed the Shift Tab
functionality.  The dialog parameters to put Tab and Shift Tab on the
Down and Up Arrow keys were:

NotebookEventActions->
{"DownArrowKeyDown":>FrontEndTokenExecute["Tab"],
"UpArrowKeyDown":>FrontEndTokenExecute["MovePreviousPlaceHolder"]}

May this info serve you well. ;-)
