    the "end" key above the arrows doesn't take the cursor to the end of the line like I expect (and want).

    don't see any way to get this to work, any ideas out there ?

    thanks

    PS the new keyboard is excellent

    thanks for the quick reply, but that doesn't work for me

    I've tried both KBD settings for "Use all F1, F2, ... keys" -- doesn't help

    Look under the help menu of the Pages WP application (in iWorks) and you will find a list of KB shortcuts....

    Option+ right arrow end of word
    Command + right arrow end of line

    I love you...really I do.

    I've been on macs for a couple years now and I still find myself hitting the "end" key to get to the end of the line....but it's never worked until now...

    Macbook keyboard shortcuts

    I have just inherited a macbook, running os x. And so I'm learning as well.

    To anyone else struggling - Be sure to check your keyboard shortcuts within the program that you're using first! (e.g. Dreamweaver!) Then, check your system preferences if need be.

    In my case, I had to create a new keyboard shortcut profile because the default dreamweaver profile was completely different from the system's configuration?! (Thus I would be using a windows keyboard during the day, a mac at night, and shuffling between dreamweaver's keyboard profile and the system's configuration - no way.)

    So, for me, I reset dreamweaver's keys to the macbooks's default configuration which is:

    Cmd + Right Arrow = End of line
    Shift + Cmd + Right = Highlight to end of line
    Cmd + Left Arrow = Beginning of line
    Shift + Cmd + Left = Highlight to Beginning

    Option + Right = Jump to next word
    Option + Left = Jump to last word

    Cmd + Up Arrow = Jump to Beginning of file
    Cmd + Down Arrow = Jump to end of file

    Also:

    Fn + Delete = Actual Delete (forward delete)
    Delete = Backspace :)

    I use fn + right arrow to go to the end of the line and alt + right arrow to go to the end of a word, with the arrow to the left works in reverse.
