1232RE: [jasspa] CUA support - update
- Oct 17, 2004I know that the CUA standard really only affects cut/copy/paste, open,
save, find and a couple more.
I don't mean the mode to be a definitive solution, just a stopgap so
people can use a decent editor without having to learn all the emacs
keybindings or have consistency with other applications (in my case,
mylqlcc uses C-e for "execute query", imagine how dangerous it is to
use ME's "end of line").
One of the main things that ME has that most other Unix/multiplatform
editor is that you can configure most things with a GUI. Try
configuring scite (just one example), you need to edit the
configuration file and it is not that easy. You can't expect a newbie
to do that (you can't expect it from me either, I don't have that much
time to waste configuring a text editor, that's why I try every single
editor I can get my hands on and always come back to ME, it just works
for 90% of the things I want to do).
Apps that use C-w to close tab (buffer): mozilla, konqueror,
openoffice. Many others (kate, mysqlcc) use C-f4, but I put that one to
"close window"... as you said, many things are not exactly "set".
The C-h to replace is also one of the possibilities. I am just more
used to C-r. F3 to "search again" seems to be quite common (Most MS
In the end, I reckon that we should use the MS ones, as they are the
ones that people are most likely to have used before. Not all options
need binded to a key, as I expect that most CUA users are also mouse
users (not that it is bad that they are).
Well, just my opinion, now you're free to ignore me completely :)
