I type with ten fingers. I try to avoid all keys on the keyboard which are not easily accessible:
Up to now my fingers like the emacs key bindings, since they work in the editor and with bash:
- ctrl-a: beginning of line
- ctrl-e: end of line
- ctrl-k: kill from cursor until end of line
- ctrl-y: insert killed content (paste)
I am currently switching from emacs to pycharm.
Now I could modify pycharm (there is already a config with emacs key bindings). But still there are a lot of other applications like webbrowser, email client, ... which don't understand the key bindings.
Ain't there a way to have the fundamental things available in all text inputs?
Update I am not fixed to the emacs keybings. I am still young enough to learn a different one. But it needs to be accessible for ten finger typers: I don't want to leave keys F and J with my forefingers.
