I was using ^!Keyboard CTRL+HOME in certain clips, then discovered the
JUMP command, ^!Jump DOC_START that does exactly the same thing. Does
it achieve the same end by different means? It's detailed under the
(dense) Help page "Select, Copy, and Insert Text" The full paragraph
^!Jump nnn or ^!Jump +/-nnn or
Moves cursor to the indicated position. If the parameter is a number
without a sign (+/-), the command will treat it as the line position
from the start of the document. When a sign is used, the command will
move the cursor a relative number of lines from the current position;
a positive number moving it towards the end of the text and a negative
number towards the start. If you don't specify a line number, you can
use one of the following settings:
LINE_START or LINE_END: places cursor at the beginning or end of the
current line. This feature treats a line as if word wrap is turned
SELECT_START or SELECT_END: places cursor at the beginning or end of
the selection and unselects the text.
TEXT_START or TEXT_END: moves to start or end of a plain document or
the content of an Outline heading.
DOC_START or DOC_END: moves to start or end of any kind of document.
which offers another approach to ^!KeyBoard DOWN
