I have a MacBook Pro that is using the 10.10.5 (Yosemite, the second one, I believe) operating system, and I want to change some "text"/"document" keyboard shortcuts for specific programs to have a unified shortcut functionality across all software I use.
System Preferences doesn't seem to have any way to change them, and I had called a technical support person at Apple to see if there was any way I could. There was not, and I simply continued to search online if there was ANY way they can be changed.
I came to a website, seeing someone wanting to add a new shortcut, for documents (not as simply as I would want, but...), using Automator. It is actually a big surprise what it can do!
I was wondering how may I add two keyboard shortcuts of the same thing, just different directions (they involve Ctrl+Up / Down arrows, doing what Cmd+Up / Down arrows do in text-type applications. Again, that is the thing I can not change in
System Preferences | Keyboard Shortcuts.
I do not want to switch around Ctrl and Cmd as the other's modifier key for any type of text documents; the prominent ones I have that I simply use most are Notes, Pages, and Scrivener (I would think there can be an option for adding for all text-type applications, but that is why I'm asking, that I can know).
What would I select in Automator (the services document in it, as the start), and then what to type in to add those two commands (and I can answer what the commands are in more detail).
Those shortcuts will help me immensely, since I also do much writing and typing, and would like some uniform cursor-movement options.
