15.3. Keyboard Shortcuts

The text widget has a number of pre-installed keyboard shortcuts for common editing, motion and selection functions. These are accessed using Control and Alt key combinations.

In addition to these, holding down the Control key whilst using cursor key movement will move the cursor by words rather than characters. Holding down Shift whilst using cursor movement will extend the selection.
