    Hello,
    I'm using quite often the those two key combinations to skip respectively a word or go at the end/beginning of a line.

    I'm also using terminal quite often (my Linux part ;)) but those combinations don't work there and I have the use the bash-like shortcuts . Note that all of them don't work such as move fwd/back one word.

    Any idea how to make option/command+arrows work ?


    Thanks,
    Tex

    On the linked page, none of the shortcuts use the arrow keys. Moving by word involves using alt+f and alt+b, and you can move to the beginning of a line with ctrl+a and to end with ctrl+e. The shortcuts I tried work for me. Is your Terminal window set for Bash?

    Yes but those are the bash shortcuts that work for me as well but I do want to use the OSX system wide shortcuts instead of those.
