Reassigning Command Arrow Keys

Post by bjast » 2010-01-06 21:41:44

Sorry for the flurry of recent questions, but I’m evaluating NWP to see if can make the leap from my current word processor.

I’m wondering if NWP can reassign command keys, specifically Command Down & Up Arrows to make the insertion point move to the beginning of each paragraph instead of the Beginning and End of the doc, as it now does?

Thanks

You can customize those keyboard bindings, but it would be across all Cocoa/OSX applications. I'm no expert on it, but you may find Kino's instructions or these other instructions helpful.

You can use those keybindings by installing the attached file as
/Users/you/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict
DefaultKeyBinding.dict.zip

As Martin explained, they will work in all newly launched Cocoa apps. I think you can add other definitions easily using KeyBinding Editor (free).
