Efficient Document Writing and Editing

We see a lot of users trying to edit large text documents, but they often don't use the standard keyboard commands to speed things up. Here are a few to get you started.

• Move to start/end of line - Cmd+left/right arrow
• Move to start/end of paragraph - Opt+up/down arrow
• Back-delete current line - Cmd+Shift+Delete (comes in handy when you’re just beginning a story)
• Forward-delete current line - Cmd+Shift+Right arrow, and then hit delete.
• Back/forward delete one word at a time - Option+Backspace/Delete.

The general rule of thumb is that Option goes for whole bits like words, paragraphs and such. For instance, Opt+left/right arrow will jump across each word. 

To delete the rest of your paragraph from where your cursor stands, hit Control+K. To paste it in another place, hit Control+Y! This will not affect your Cmd+C/V clipboard.  

Create a sticky note by hitting Cmd+Shift+Y, after which any selected text will go to a nice sticky note.

These are just a few shortcuts to get you started. We can always post more if you’d like, just let us know.
