Hi Bobby

On your Windows machine, does Alt+] and then Alt+] again give the same
result as my 9 keystroke sequence "Esc [ [ Esc Esc ] ] Esc left_arrow",
i.e. the pair of characters represented at the Expression level by
\[LeftDoubleBracket] and \[RightDoubleBracket], with cursor in the
middle (achieved by my left-arrow)?

If it does, then sacre bleu! It doesn't on my PC; first thing I tried.
Otherwise, ...

I want the nice notation without 9 keystrokes each time.
