Control+Space to highlight?


#1

How can I configure Atom to use a Control+Space hotkey to highlight, like Emacs?


#2

I’m not sure what you mean by highlight? Do you mean select text?


#3

Yes, that is correct.


#4

Can you elaborate more? Do you mean the cursor is at X, Y and you press Ctrl+Space then move the cursor someplace else and press Ctrl+Space to mark an area?

If so, you might want to take a look at the joe-keybinds package. It has similar functionality a la old Wordstar-like ^K^B and ^K^K keybindings to mark a selection region. You could use it as a basis.

Good thinking. Hopefully emacs-plus does the trick!
