WinFBE editing keyboard shortcuts you should be using
« on: August 25, 2018, 11:09:14 AM »

Every now and again I need to use a different editor to look at source code files. Most of the time it is either JellyFish (for ANSI files) or TextPad (for unicode). It is during those times that I realize how dependent I have become on the following two keyboard shortcuts:

Ctrl+D: This duplicates the current line. It is so much faster than having to highlight the current line and the copy/paste.

Ctrl+Shift+Up, or Ctrl+Shift+Down: These shortcuts move the current line up or down a line. In combination with the Ctrl+D duplicate line, it makes for a super fast way to quickly create a code line and then move it.

Anyway, just thought I'd share in case you folks were not aware of this functionality (it is buried under the "Edit", "Line Operations" menu).

I want to bump this topic because if you're using WinFBE then you need to get accustomed to using these shortcuts. You will be amazed at how much it will increase your productivity.
