8.7 Getting started with the editor

8.7.2 Moving around files

This section describes how you can move the cursor around the buffer. There are a variety of commands, allowing you to move sideways, up, or down by one character, or by a number of characters.

To move directly to any point in the buffer, position the pointer and click the left mouse button. If necessary, use the scroll bars to reveal sections of the buffer which are not visible in the window.

You can either use the arrow keys, or the keyboard commands shown below to move the cursor in any direction by one character.

Figure 8.5 Moving the cursor by one character

The keyboard commands below move to the beginning or end of the line, or the top or bottom of the buffer.

Figure 8.6 Keyboard commands for basic movement within an editor buffer

PressCtrl-V or the Page Down key to scroll down one screenful of text.

PressMeta-V or the Page Up key to scroll up one screenful of text.

You should ensure that you learn all the keyboard commands described above, since they make navigation in a buffer much easier.
