Why do we need feature like Transpose character?


#1

I was reading Atom 1.0.0 documentation. While I was reading the doc. I fund a feature called Transpose, so I was thinking at what circumstance do we need this kind of feature?

Transpose characters. This swaps the two characters on either side of the cursor.

Here is my questions:

  • When do you use this feature?
  • Is there any trick with this feature or this feature becoming handy with combination of other shortcuts?

Thank you.

Update

Use Cases:

  1. Move the next char after quote inside. (I have read an use case online, which basically want to move the common after quotation mark inside the quote.)

#2

Transposing two characters is the most common typo humans make. The function is a convenience for fixing those typos.
