OS X: How to move a cursor to the beginning of the line?

Post by CLUser » Mon Sep 14, 2015 7:51 am

I'm wondering how to move a cursor to the beginning of the current line by pressing CMD + Left? I don't know why but CodeLite moves a cursor to the previous word. How to change this behavior?

CodeLite follows the standard _non_ OSX conventions to move cursor to the end of the line, i.e. HOME and END buttons
The only exception is using CMD+UP and CMD+DOWN that on OSX moves the caret to the beginning / end of document

IF you think this is wrong, please report this as bug

I don't have HOME and AND buttons on MacBook Air 11" :) I thought the standart should be: Alt + Left and Alt + Right for the end of the line and the beginning of the line.
It would be better to have an ability to move cursor to the end of the line by pressing CMD + Right and CMD + Left for the opposite direction. I don't think that it's bug but it's just uncomfortable to use :)

Is there a way to move cursor to the end of the string and to the beginning of the string in the CodeLight if I don't have HOME and END buttons? :)

It's really very uncomfortable feature to use because it's our habbit to move cursor to the beginng of the string by pressing CMD+Left...
I can't use CodeLight because I always use those shortcuts :(

Wow that build works nice! Very comfortable to use :) But again problem with the console it writes me in the output window:
Program exited with return code: 256
But I don't see the Console. I tried to find it somewhere behind all my windows but I couldn't find it nowhere :) I tried to Run few times but it doesn't start Console window..

This usually means that you program crashed...

Can you run it from the command line? (i.e from a Terminal window)
