Q38310: Moving to the Beginning of the Line with Microsoft Editor
Article: Q38310 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 6-JAN-1989 Question: Is there a way to go to column 1 of the screen with a key sequence instead of pressing the LEFT ARROW key until the cursor stops at column 1? I find myself wasting a lot of time doing this repetitive chore. The HOME key only takes me to the beginning of the text on the line, not the beginning of the line, which is where I want to be if I want to delete a line, for example. I currently use ^K-S with the Wordstar extension. Response: Meta Begline (F9 HOME in the standard configuration) will do it. If you'd like it on one key, you can assign the functions to a key using the macro facility.
