Some emacs style keystrokes have been taken away


Recommended Posts

This is a big bummer for the emacs keystroke people among us. 

What used to happen:

  1. You hit control + k and you would remove all text to the right of the cursor (kill)
  2. Then if you hit control + y it would paste it back on the screen to the right of where you cursor was (yank)

What happens now:

#1 above works but #2 doesn't. 

Again that's a big bummer. Kind of a big take away. Can we please bring it back? 

 

Better yet, lets dial in an emacs mode, or a vi/vim mode for those of us that like to minimize usage of the mouse. 

Thanks

You are the member of a supposedly very small fraction of the EN users.

This does not mean your request should go unanswered, but your chances of getting a special „mode“ added to EN are IMHO very slim.

AFAIK EN thinks about making all keyboard shortcuts customizable. Maybe this opens an option to adapt your client the way you would like it to work.

Thanks for your answer. This would be very smart as I only need a handful or more special shortcuts. 

Users get sad when functionality is taken away.
