Additionally, following are Ctrl+keys that work and do not work (linux). Work as usual: Ctrl+G - find next (but Ctrl+F doesn't work) Ctrl+I - page info Ctrl+L - goes to url bar Ctrl+O - file open dialog box Ctrl+Q - quit Ctrl+S - save as Ctrl+T - new tab special for textbox: Ctrl+A - cursor start of line Ctrl+B - cursor left (back) Ctrl+C - copy selection Ctrl+D - delete char after cursor Ctrl+E - cursor end of line Ctrl+F - cursor right (forward) Ctrl+H - backspace (^H) Ctrl+K - kill to end of line Ctrl+N - cursor down (next line) Ctrl+P - cursor up (prev line) Ctrl+R - redo last undo Ctrl+U - Kill line Ctrl+V - paste from clipboard Ctrl+W - delete prev word Ctrl+X - cut selection Ctrl+Z - undo unknown: Ctrl+J Ctrl+M behaviour should be consistent. either all should not work, or all should work. I think there should be an additional modifier to make these things work in text areas. A simple text box doesn't require so many control characters. Ctrl+C, X, V are standard, and have similar usage inside and outside. Maybe this will help
Don't we already have a dupe of this?
Cc'ing some editor folks who know about text widget keybindings.
Sairuh, what's the master bug to which we're duping these "confusion about all the conflicting key bindings in linux" bugs?
