      No list that I can find. The only list you have is NoteTabs default key bindings. Looks like you re on your own here. Why not just try it out. Change the

        Don't expect support for WS cursor commands. Of course the DOT commands are not part of key mapptng, so they will not be supported.
        You'll have to suffer with the clip commands instead.

        Use your list of wordstar commands, try them one at a time. See what happens. You can always change it back without any residual effects.

        Just for laughs, you can then report your results back here, and become the WordStar expert ;-).


        Cheers,

          Wasn't worried about DOT commands, just Ctrl-K,B etc. On reflection,
          I imagine I'd be lucky if NTP responded to two-key commands.

          Maybe I'll just stick to my DOS WordStar-style editor (VDE) for
          flowing text, or find a Windows one, and use NTP for what it does
          well. My impression is that a great deal of the power and value of NTP
          (and Lite) resides in the Clipbook system. I made a small simple
          clipbook for forum posting, and find it convenient for some things,
          though others are simpler just to remember.
