Non-standard keyboard shortcuts for end of line and end of word

Recommended Posts

Mac standard keyboard shortcut for moving the cursor to the end of the line is cmd+right arrow; moving to end of word is alt+right arrow. In APub, cmd+right arrow gives end of word, alt+right arrow does nothing. Is this deliberate, or a bug? I find it really confusing, as it's a shortcut I've got used to, and use quite often.

I agree. The non-standard use of shortcuts in all of Affinity's apps drive me crazy. Please follow the common shortcuts guidelines for the Mac (and Windows)

This is surely not a “bug.”   Have you had time to look  at PREFERENCES>Shortcuts?    You can easily change any of them to conform to your customary work  habits.    Hope that helps.

As far as I can tell there's no way to get the standard text editing shortcuts in Affinity through the keyboard shortcut preferences. I have tried.

In layout apps this is different. CMD-arrow moves cursor by words, ALT-arrow adjusts kerning.
