NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Choosing the key input style

The Editor and other tools using capi:editor-pane offer two key input styles: Emacs emulation or Microsoft Windows emulation. By default, Emacs emulation is used. To choose an emulation, select Environment > Emulation in the Preferences dialog as shown in Configuring the editor emulation and select one of the Editor keys like ... options.

Note: In this and other manuals, the Emacs keys are generally given. For help with findings keys for editor commands, choose Help > Editing > Command to Key . Also see the files config/key-binds.lisp and config/msw-key-binds.lisp which contain the forms defining the keys for each input style.
