I installed Crossover and then EditPlus. The app starts up great: but the feature I was most interested in - mnemonics - is not working. They should be activated by hitting option + < Key> but instead European characters are placed in the editor panel.

enter image description here Has anyone figured out how to do mnemonics for Windows Apps? iirc the same thing happened with linux apps accessed via XWindows.

  • an alternative would be bbedit. has a free and paid version. Commented Jul 6, 2019 at 21:57
  • @historystamp it's not about the editor - it's about the mnemonics. I already have the best editor one can find on Mac - it's called pycharm/intellij. yes I use it as a general purpose editor. But that app is even better when mnemonics are fully working Commented Jul 6, 2019 at 22:24
  • It's an option you need to change it in preferences. see this thread: codeweavers.com/support/forums/general/… Commented Jul 6, 2019 at 23:32
  • @historystamp the implied availability by that thread notwithstanding there is no option in the preferences Commented Jul 7, 2019 at 3:20
  • Suggest you ask over in crossover support forum. Commented Jul 7, 2019 at 3:37

1 Answer 1


I asked in support from Crossover and the answer is:

Use Command + letter

This does work. There is a separate problem then is that the movement keys using Command such as

Commandright arrow for End

do not work. But I'll handle that separately.
