When editing code there is a very inconvenient difference from MaxOSX and Linux/Windows when moving the cursor to the next word.
I'm talking about the "Next Word" and "Previous Word" commands in the "Keys" preference tab. The default binding for Windows and Linux is Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right respectively, while in MacOsX is Alt+Left and Alt+Right.
If I have a line like this:
when moving across words, the boundaries do not include the dot. Therefore, if I hold Shift, I cannot quickly select "myMethod". I can only select the whole "myObject.myMethod".
The only way I can select the word "myMethod" is by moving letter by letter with the arrow keys.
