5 Emulation

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

When using KDE/Gnome editor emulation the main differences are:

5.1 Using KDE/Gnome editor emulation

5.2 Key bindings

5.3 Replacing the current selection

5.4 Emulation in Applications
