jump to the beginning or end of a line or a text

in windows there is the possibility to jump to the beginning of a line with "home" and to the end with "end".

with ctrl+home you jump to the beginning of a text and with ctrl+end to the end.

and if you keep the shift-key pressed, you mark the text between the start- and the end-position.

this doesn't seem to work on mac. is there a way to do something similar via btt?

btw... on my external mac-keyboard there is no home-key or end-key.

  • Command–Up Arrow: Move the insertion point to the beginning of the document.
  • Command–Down Arrow: Move the insertion point to the end of the document.
  • Command–Left Arrow: Move the insertion point to the beginning of the current line.
  • Command–Right Arrow: Move the insertion point to the end of the current line.

thank you, frank! i did not know that this is possible in macos.

your answer gave me an idea: i use macos and windows (in a parallels-vm) both on my mac. now, after some trial and error, i was able to adjust these key combinations in parallels so that they apply equally to macos and windows. it works!
(i was able to disable the windows combinations that had other effects).

thanks again for your suggestion!

Ah, I forget to tell you that you can adjust that to your liking :grinning:

There's also Control-A and Control-E to move to the start/end of the current line in many circumstances.
