End key on mac os

Expected behavior in a text-editor on OSX is for the 'home' key and 'end' key to move the cursor to the first and last line of the current file, rather than having no function as is current behavior. I am guessing this is the relevant file You can redefine them to act the way you are suggesting by adding the following to your keymap.

If you're suggesting that the keys acting the way you describe should be the default behavior, I would disagree. TextMate 2, TextEdit and Pages scroll the viewport to the top and bottom of the document without moving the cursor, even if the cursor would end up outside the viewport. Behaving as other native OS X text editors would be the way that I would expect things to act by default. That works great -- thanks for the info.

Actions should always default to the current platform's conventions. On Mac OS since the very early days, the Home, End, Page Up and Page Down controls control scrolling in a viewport, unlike other systems like Windows which treat these as cursor-moving commands. Even the sample key bindings you've given as an override are not completely correct because they change the current caret position.

On Mac OS, these keys conventionally do not change the text caret. Moving the caret is done with various modifiers on the arrow keys. To move the cursor to the top of the document, it's Command-Up Arrow. User profile for user: Jonathan Chan Jonathan Chan. All replies Drop Down menu.

That's what I was used to with my previous MacBook. That would almost drive me more crazy than no firewire. I use the end key to get to the footers of webpages very often Once again logic based on previous versions fails us Restarting finder should be sufficient.
