Keyboard command bindings?

Postby David Lamkins on Tue Aug 28, 2012 5:20 pm

I've been able to figure out most of the keyboard command bindings by looking at the files included in the distribution.

However, there are some commands which involve undocumented key bindings, like the move / resize command.

I've discovered that move / resize (control-x control-x m) is a modal command. In this mode the arrow keys move the editor window, the page up / page down keys make the editor window taller and shorter, and the ESC key ends the mode.

What I haven't been able to discover is: how does one change the width of the editor window in move / resize mode?

(In case it matters, this is Dyalog APL Linux PE 13.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 running in a gnome-terminal window.)

I finally stumbled upon the <layer2>Home and <layer2>End keys for this. It had not occurred to me that width would be on layer2 with height on layer1.
