I'm using OS 10.6, and I like to use the option-arrow command to move forwards and backward one word at a time. But one thing is annoying to me:
If the cursor is here:
option-leftarrrow moves it here:
when I really want it here:
And similarly with other special characters like $, braces etc.
One reason this is a pain is because I'd like to be able to select a whole command using the shortcut shift-option-arrow. It's also annoying because it really slows down navigation through a long equation.
Does anyone know a workaround for this? Hopefully it would be an OS X or TexShop preference, since I use TexShop.
