5 Emulation

By default the LispWorks Editor emulates GNU Emacs. This is often unusable for programmers familiar only with Mac OS X keys and behavior: for instance, a selection is not deleted on input, and most of the commonly used keys differ.

The LispWorks editor can be switched to emulate the Mac OS X model instead of Emacs.

When using Mac OS X editor emulation the main differences are:

5.1 Using Mac OS X editor emulation

5.2 Key bindings

5.3 Replacing the current selection

5.4 Emulation in Applications
