I have recently made the jump to Ubuntu from Windows and I want to bind certain shortcuts that I got used to while using Windows. Following the answer in a similar question, I was able to bind the Home and End Keys to Fn+ and Fn+ respectively. However, I was still not able to make use of related shortcuts such as Shift+Fn+ (to select text till the beginning of the line). Here are the Key Combinations and Expected Outcomes.

Keyboard Shortcut Action
Shift+Fn+ Select all text from the current position of the cursor to the beginning of the line
Shift+Fn+ Select all text from the current position of the cursor to the end of the line
Ctrl+Fn+ Send the cursor to the beginning of the document.
Ctrl+Fn+ Send the cursor to the end of the document.
Ctrl+Shift+Fn+ Select all text from the current position of the cursor to the beginning of the document
Ctrl+Shift+Fn+ Select all text from the current position of the cursor to the end of the document

It would be great if the solution could be implemented using AutoKey, but I am open to other methods too.

There is nothing like these functions in Ubuntu Keyboard Shortcuts. I believe that they are left to the scope of text editors.

Emacs has some functions that you need but it uses lines not sentences. Most Unix text editors are line based, for historical reasons. Line and sentence are usually about of same size so you should be able to change your habits without too much pain.

Emacs and vi are programmable and covered by other sites.
