    How do I have the cursor jump to the very end or beginning or a sentence? I've tried hitting the 'home' and 'end' key, but it doesn't work. Is my keyboard broken? I have the Apple wifi keyboard

    You can use command-left arrow and command-right arrow to move the cursor to the beginning or end of the current line. The home and end keys do not move the cursor on Macs, but instead scroll the document; the home key scrolling to the top and the end key scrolling to the bottom.

    Thanks for the reply. :) I'm one happy switcher, now that I can move the cursor instantly w/o having to wait for it to move through each character! :D

    Use the up and down arrows to move the cursor to the beginning or the end of the document. Or any text field. Just a FYI.
