I am a long-time PC user using macOS. I am missing some useful commands I used when coding. I know can add keyboard shortcuts but I would like to know is there already command equivalents for Mac:

  1. Home Button: Go to the beginning of the line.
  2. End Button: Go to the end of the line.
  3. Shift + Home: Selection of the line from the cursor point to the beginning of the line (not up to the document)
  4. Shift + End: Selection of the line from the cursor point to the end of the line.
  5. Shift + Delete = Cut Text
  6. Control + Insert = Copy text
  7. Shift + Insert = Paste text

    There are several websites that show the equivalences for those moving from pc to mac... – Solar Mike May 14 '18 at 12:28

    @fsb No, it's not. Please read through my question and you will find that it's not about only cut, copy, paste and select but also moving cursor in a line and selecting in a different way. – Siddiqui Noor May 14 '18 at 15:25
