is there a way to make TeXstudio's shortcuts behave as one would expect on OS X? In particular, Command+Left usually moves the cursor to the beginning of the line, but in TeXstudio it takes me left a word. Similarly, Alt-Left usually moves the cursor a word to the left, but in TeXstudio it moves the cursor to the previous edit location.

  • Does this solve the problem? The other solution in a general cases is to overwrite the shortcuts from OS X settings (you can even assign shortcuts for those commands that don't have one by default). P.S. I also agree, texstudio has some really annoying shortcuts on OS X. – Pouya Mar 14 '14 at 14:58

  • Note: From the next version on (2.7.2) TeXstudio will provide more native shortcuts on OSX by default. – Tim Hoffmann Mar 23 '14 at 16:33

Modifying TeXstudio shortcuts are done from Configur->Shortcuts menu. Here you can find information in details:

If there is a shortcut (not only for this case, but in general) that you can't modify or a command has no shortcut assigned to, you can use OS X settings to solve the problem.
