Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the emacsKeyBindings property if you're familiar with Emacs and prefer to use its standard keystrokes for text editing.

Value:

The emacsKeyBindings is true or false.

By default, the emacsKeyBindings property is set to false.

Comments:

Emacs is a text editor which is popular among Unix users. It uses keystrokes and key combinations different from the standard Revolution keys. For example:

* Control-V moves the insertion point down a page

* Control-Y pastes the contents of the clipboard

* Control-A moves the insertion point to the beginning of the line

* Control-F moves the insertion point forward one character

* Delete backspaces over the previous character

(For a complete list of supported key bindings, see the Emacs Key Bindings Reference.)

Important! Keyboard equivalents for menu items take precedence over the Emacs key bindings. If one of the key bindings is already in use as a menu item keyboard equivalent, it cannot be used for text editing. (For this reason, some of the Emacs key bindings do not function as expected in the development environment.)

Changes to Revolution:

In versions before 1.1, the emacsKeyBindings property affected Command-key combinations, not Control-key combinations, on Mac OS systems.
