Hello

Just a simple request, I hope. The sequential hitting of home should work like Visual C++. The first home moves to the 1st character in the line, 2nd home to column 1, etc. I find myself consistly pressing home, then ctl-right_arrow.

On the subject of home sequences, there is a bug in the current feature. Press home and the cursor moves to column 1. Re-position the cursor on a different line with the mouse, then press home again. I would expect the cursor to move to the beginning of the new current line, but it moves to the beginning of the page.

Hi Jack,
The first home moves to the 1st character in the line, 2nd home to column 1
Interestingly enough only just a few days ago in this thread I raised the point that many editors add their on special behaviour to many of the standard editing keys. To cut a long story short the end result is Zeus will not try to emulate every such editor using built-in keyboard functions, because the desired functionality can be achieved using as simple macro script.

In this case save the code below to the zScript/home.lua file and rebind the current home key to use this script.

Code: Select all

function key_macro()
   screen_update_disable()
   local cursor = get_cursor_pos()

   if (cursor == 1) then
     MoveLineRight()
   else
     MoveLineHome()
   end
   screen_update_enable()
   screen_update()
end

key_macro() -- run the macro
On the subject of home sequences, there is a bug in the current feature.
Jack, this is blasphemy. What you are in fact seeing is keystroke made famous by the Brief editor :!:

But in a way you are right :roll: Rather than being bound to the MoveDocumentStartEx function, for the MSVC keymap the Home key should in fact be bound to the MoveLineHome function. I will fix up the mapping.

Cheers Jussi

Thanks Jussi,

Thanks for the macro. I changed it to the behavour which seems intuitive to me.

Jack

function key_macro()
screen_update_disable()
local cursor_after_move = 1
local start_cursor = get_cursor_pos()

if ( start_cursor ~= 1) then
MoveLineHome()
MoveLineRight()
cursor_after_move = get_cursor_pos()
end

if (start_cursor == cursor_after_move or start_cursor == 1) then
MoveDocumentStartEx()
end
screen_update_enable()
screen_update()
end

key_macro() -- run the macro
