Although some of these are elementary, a lot of these could comfortably fall in the not-so-known or even hardly-known category. Bottom line: knowing all of these can significantly push your productivity up a notch and before you know, you’d be saving valuable minutes on the clock.
Without further ado, here they are:
1. Alt+Left Arrow
Takes you to the beginning of word your cursor is currently located at.
2. Alt+Right Arrow
Allows you to jump to the end of the current word.
3. Command+Left Arrow
Takes you to the beginning of the current line of text you are at.
4. Command+Right Arrow
Go to the end of the current line of text.
Jump to the beginning or the end of all the text on a page respectively.
Go to beginning or end of the current paragraph respectively. Alternatively, you can also press Command+A or Command+E for the same results.
7. Important Note
Pressing also the Shift key with any of the above shortcuts will allow you to select the text instead of just navigating through it.
8. Command+Z (Undo)
If you make a mistake while typing, use this shortcut to undo it.
9. Command+Shift+Z (Redo)
And if you decide you don’t want to erase/undo after all, type this command to reverse the Undo action.
(You might need to also press Shift in some applications): Allows you to find any word or snippet of text in most text files.
