5 Emulation

By default the LispWorks Editor emulates GNU Emacs. This is often unusable for programmers familiar only with Mac OS 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 model instead of Emacs.

When using Mac OS emulation the main differences are:

5.1 Using Mac OS editor emulation

5.2 Key bindings

5.3 Replacing the current selection

5.4 Emulation in Applications
