Cursor Arrows (Cursor Movement)


The "up", "down", "right" and "left" arrows will move the cursor one character or line as indicated.

 

Holding down the CTRL key while using the "left" or "right" cursor arrows will move the cursor left and right to the beginning of the previous/next word.

 

Holding down the CTRL key while using the "up" or "down" keys does not affect the cursor position, but moves the text within the editor window up or down respectively.  If the text is moved enough for the cursor to meet the upper or lower edge of the editor window the cursor will then move from line to line as it does when normally using the "up" and "down" arrows.

 

Holding down the ALT key while using the "left" or "right" cursor arrows will move the cursor to the beginning of the previous/next paragraph.
