Intro

A blog on some key combinations that helped me to write/edit faster.
Those combos are working in (almost) any editor.

Key combos

CTRL + left/right arrow

useful when you want to move the cursor between words.

Alt Text

CTRL + SHIFT + left/right arrow

useful when you want to to select consecutive words.

Alt Text

SHIFT + HOME

useful when you want to select something from where the cursor is till the beginning of the line.

Alt Text

SHIFT + END

useful when you want to select something from where the cursor is till the end of the line.

Alt Text

SHIFT + up/down arrow

useful when you want to select multiple lines.

Alt Text

CTRL + HOME

useful when you want to go the start of the file.

Alt Text

CTRL + END

useful when you want to go the end of the file.

Alt Text

All the selection combos are useful when are combined with the usual suspects (copy, paste and cut):

CTRL + C

CTRL + V

CTRL + X

Cheers!
