I use a macOS for work doing technical writing, and I’ve recently got an Ubuntu desktop at home (20.04). I’m using the same external keyboard for both, and the biggest thing I struggle with is that I’m so used to using the following macOS hotkeys:
- Alt+Backspace – delete word on the left (I realize that this can be achieved by ⌘+Backspace, but I’d prefer if everything was the same across OSs)
- Alt+Left/Right – move cursor one word left/right (including the ⌘+Shift combo to select&move)
- ⌘+Backspce – delete line left
- ⌘+Left/Right – move cursor to start/end of line (including the ⌘+Shift combo to select&move)
Whenever I have to use a Windows machine, I reconfigure it using AutoHotkey to give the macOS-like shortcuts. is there an equivalent way that I can adjust these settings on a system-wide basis for Ubuntu?
(and no, Vim is not an option 🙂 )
