    Hey everybody, I just bought my first Macbook Pro the other day. I've been using Windows forever and I'm a keyboard shortcut freak, I hate using the mouse if I don't have to. Anyway, I'm wondering if I can edit all the custom keyboard shortcuts. I've been in the keyboard setting and have been playing with the modifiers, but there are a few things that I can't get to work correctly. If you would either tell me how to do it or how to modify it, that would be great. Either way, I'm sure I'll get used to thing sooner or later once I know about that.

    1) In windows, you can use ALT+S to submit forms from a website.
    2) In windows, you can use CTRL+Arrow left or right to skip through words in text and you can use CTRL+SHIFT+Arrow left or right to highlight words.

    Edit: I've figured out the answer to #2. I see you can use ALT+Arrow to switch through words and then SHIFT+ALT+ARROW to select words, but I just don't know how to quickly submit forms from a websites input boxes.

    Were you using Internet Explorer while in Windows? That feature you mention is browser-specific - it doesn't work in Safari for Windows, I just tried it to submit this post :eek::p

    If you have an input field selected that is not a text area you can just hit return to submit the form.

    As a matter of fact, we did use to enable shortcuts for submitting forum posts, but people kept submitting them prematurely by accident when they pressed command instead of shift! So we disabled the feature. But that was a MacRumors/vBulletin feature, not particular to Safari or any other web browser.
