Hi, guys, I’m new to Atom, and after getting it installed I was eager to start flying high. Checking out the Flight Manual, though, and found that a lot of the keyboard shortcuts are–as far as I could tell–wrong. Is this just a matter of the doc needing to be updated, or am I missing something? I’m on Ubuntu, if that makes a difference.
For the curious, some examples of things not doing what the Flight Manual says: Looking at the first six actions, which is also the first ten keyboard shortcuts, as they have two apiece, in the “Moving in Atom” subsection of Chapter 2 I find that^:
- alt-b - Move to beginning of word
- alt-left - Move to beginning of word
- alt-f - Move to end word (Opens File menu)
- alt-right - Move to end of word
- cmd-right - Move to end of line (Moves to end of word)
- ctrl-e - Move to end of line (Finds and highlights word under cursor across the file)
- cmd-left - Move to first character of line (Moves to beginning of word)
- ctrl-a - Move to first character of line (Selects all)
- cmd-up - Move to top of file (Switches line with line above it)
- cmd-down - Move to bottom of file (Switches line with line below it)
So, again, am I making some blunder? Or… why is the Flight Manual so far off?
^I understand that instances of cmd should be replaced with ctrl since I’m on Ubuntu.
