Using WF4 on Mac.

Previously in WF3, the End key has skipped me to end of the sentence.
Now on WF4 it skips to the end of the document! (useless!)

The former function was quite useful, especially when having to move to earlier places in the sentence, then continue translating.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

DJH

Ticketed for improvement Sep 22, 2016

Dear DJH,

Sorry to hear you are experiencing frustration with this. We have two development tickets to improve this. First, to add these shortcuts to the list of shortcuts so that you can change them if necessary. Then, to change the default behavior on Mac.

Please comment in this forum if this looks ok to you:

*Expected default behavior:
Cmd + right arrow key brings cursor to the end of the line.
Cmd + left arrow key brings cursor to the beginning of the line.
Ctl + right arrow leverages next TU.
Ctl + left arrow leverages previous TU.
Fn + right arrow key brings cursor to the end of the segment.
Fn + left arrow key brings cursor to the beginning of the segment.
Alt + Fn + right arrow key brings cursor to the end of the document.
Alt + Fn + left arrow key brings cursor to the beginning of the document.
Alt+C Inserts the copyright symbol
Alt+Cmd+C Commits current segment

*Actual:
Cmd + right arrow leverages next TU.
Cmd + left arrow leverages previous TU.
Ctl + right arrow does nothing.
Ctl + left arrow does nothing.
Fn + left arrow scrolls to the beginning of the document.
Fn + right arrow key scrolls to the end of the document.
Alt + Fn + right arrow key commits current segment.
Alt + Fn + left arrow does nothing.
Alt+C Inserts the copyright symbol
Alt+Cmd+C Inserts the copyright symbol

Thanks in advance,

John

End too please Sep 22, 2016

These shortcuts seems all and well, but it doesn't address the 'End' key.

Home/End keys work as expected in WF3, only the Home key works in WF4 (taking the cursor back to the beginning of the sentence) whereas the End key sends the cursor to the last segment of the file.

Thanks again.

Dylan
