I like the keyboard on my MacBook Pro. It’s well spaced and easy to type on, but it has a few limitations. One of the more inconvenient aspects is the lack of dedicated text navigation keys. I’ve found the following work in most places, but not all:
- Home â†’ Ctrl-a
- End â†’ Ctrl-e
- Delete â†’ I still haven’t found a shortcut for this!
I’ve also had trouble finding with a few symbols, notably the hash key which is used extensively as a comment character in system configuration files.
- Hash (#) â†’ Alt-3
If anyone has any better shortcut combinations or other common ones please let me know.
