BeMail: Hotkeys

Contributed by: Scot Hacker
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you’ve ever been frustrated by the fact that the Home and End keys in BeMail go to the top and bottom of the document rather than to the beginning and end of the line (argh!!!), there’s hope yet — BeMail employs overrides to the system text engine to emulate a few of the more popular emacs key bindings.

The ^ symbols below represent the Ctrl key.

^e end of line
^a start of line
^b back 1 char
^f forward 1 char
^o open new line
^n next line
^p prev line
^k kill to end of line
^y paste kill buffer
