Sorry, Jan, but I have no idea what you mean. Did you tell me if you think there is something like CUA on OSX? Or do you think someone not familiar with OSX can look that up in a few minutes? (I am sure I can't.)

Are you annoying on purpose, or are you pulling my leg?
Well, in the world outside, there is this thing called internet.  You can search it for various information, one such place is Google.  There you can type in (for example) "osx default key shortcuts".  Then you find pages like this (first hit):

Scroll down to Application and other OS X shortcuts, near the middle.


Jan D.

Thanks, no I am neither pulling your leg or being annoying on purpose. Just as little as you I hope. I just know very little about OSX. And even less about the keyboard/keyboard shortcuts there. ;-)

Fine. Then I believe I understand what you mean. So on OSX the CUA-keys are placed on COMMAND-* instead of CONTROL-* and they therefore does not clash with Emacs - which I assume uses CONTROL as Emacs' Ctl?

It looks to me like you can both use OSX's default editing shortcuts and Emacs' dito by default. In that keys it looks very good in my opinion.

In my opinion that should be possible in default Emacs on Windows too. (Which require at least cua-mode is on by default.)
