Internal Full-Screen Editor
The internal full-screen editor supports many commands, all are accessed by pressing the escape key, and using the menu choices displayed at the bottom of the screen. (?) will provide help text listing all of the editors commands.
With modern terminal windows or dialers like SyncTerm, NetRunner, mTelnet or even legacy DOS based terminals like ProComm Plus, Telix or Terminate arrow keys should work for navigation within the editor.
In addition to arrow keys, there's a few default keybindings for editing:
|CONTROL-A||Move to beginning of the line|
|CONTROL-D||Delete current line|
|CONTROL-E||Move to the end of the line|
|CONTROL-K||Delete text from cursor to end of line|
|CONTROL-W||Delete word to left of cursor|
|CONTROL-X||Delete from cursor to beginning of line|
|HOME||Move to the first line of text.|
|END||Move to the last line of text|
|PAGE-UP||Move to the previous page of text.|
|PAGE-DOWN||Move to the next page of text|
In both the line and full-screen editors, the current text color can be
changed within the editor by pressing
CONTROL-P + a character 0-9.
The list of colors available and their values are defined in the
(D)efaults menu for the user.
