Default Basic Script Editor Functionality?

So I'm spending a lot of time in the script editor again and in the process am wasting a lot of time using my mouse for cursor placement instead of keys. For example why isn't there a way to use CMD-arrow or Option-Arrow to advance the cursor an entire word? Or to select everything ahead of the cursor - or behind it?

Perhaps I'm missing some key commands - please enlighten me. It seems strange to me that NinjaTrader would not implement such basic functionality. Not everyone wants to develop scripts in VisualStudio after all.

Hello molecool,

Ctrl + left arrow or Ctrl + right arrow will advance the cursor to the next word.

To select everything behind the cursor hold Shift and press the Home or End button.

Thanks, can that be remapped? Because when using Parallels under OS X (with Windows being the VM) Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right are used to switch desktops. Since that's OS based it effectively overrides this macro.

Hello molecool,

Thank you for your response.

There would not be a means to re-map this Hot Key.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
