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

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
ah nice, I think my fingers can learn that, thanks

geeze some days I miss the old EDT editor :vms:

points out, DoubleCommand can give you the PC version of this function, if you ultimately decide that's what you want.

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.
