I'd like to be able to select all the text from the current cursor position to the end of the segment. In MS Word, most web browsers and other CAT tools you can do it with Ctrl+Shift+Down. Can't make it work in Wordfast, much as I try with key shortcut preferences. Any ideas?

In other words, need a key combination to go from here (with the cursor before "an"):

Fn+Shift+right arrow on Mac for WFP5 Feb 2

Not sure about WFP3 but I suspect you need the right arrow or function key.

Best,

John

Yes, Ctrl+Shift+RightArrow does it one word at a time. I need to select the whole text at once, from the cursor to the end of the segment.

Yup, and it works when I plug an external keyboard. My laptop doesn't have an "End" key, guess I'll have to remap some other key into it. Thanks for the tip.

Fn key Feb 2

Hi Daniel,
The Fn key usually turns the down or right arrow on your keyboard into an end key. Do you have a Fn key?

Yes, but none of these do the trick:

Ctrl+Shift+Fn+DownArrow
Shift+Fn+DownArrow
Ctrl+Fn+DownArrow

Ctrl+Shift+Fn+RightArrow
Shift+Fn+RightArrow
Ctrl+Fn+RightArrow

While fumbling with all those keys I (re)discovered that Shift+DownArrow selects one line down at the time. Not exactly what I sought, but close enough.
