I just moved from Ubuntu to Mac. Maybe I'm wrong but I found the shortcuts in Mac Emacs is harder to use than in ubuntu. Such as I have to frequently use the "Arrow" in Mac to select texts while in Ubuntu I only need to keep my fingers in main area of keyboards. Specifically, I have two questions:

  1. How to select all text in a file? In Ubuntu Emacs, the shortcut is ctrlCtrl-x + h which does not work in Mac Emacs.

  2. Or anyone know how to config the shortcuts in Mac Emacs to be the same in Ubuntu?

Thanks a lot!
