caret a word at a time. Holding down
Shift in addition
to the above extends the selection a word at a time.
A single word can be selected by double-clicking with the mouse,
or using the
C+e w). A selection that begins and ends on
word boundaries can be created by double-clicking and dragging.
the word before or after the caret, respectively.
C+b) locates possible
completions for the word at the caret, first by looking in the current
edit mode's syntax highlighting keyword list, and then in the current
buffer for words that begin with the word at the caret. This serves as a
very basic code completion feature.
If there is only one completion, it will be inserted into the buffer immediately.
If multiple completions were found, the longest common prefix is inserted into the buffer, and a popup is shown below the caret position listing the completions.
To insert a completion from the list, either select it using the
DOWN keys and press
ENTER, press a digit to insert one of the first ten
completions (1 is the first completion; 9 is the 9th; 0 is the 10th), or
click the desired completion with the mouse. To close the popup without
inserting a completion, press
Typing while the popup is visible will automatically update the popup and narrow the set of completions as necessary.
The default word completion uses the visible buffers (buffers being shown in an EditPane) to find completions. The set of possible words can be expanded by enabling theoption. Setting this option will use all open buffers to search for possible completions. Note, this can degrade completion performance if many buffers are open.
> displays a dialog box with the number of characters, words and lines in the current buffer.
The default behavior of the
C+DELETE commands is to stop both at the beginning
and the end of each word. Normally, a word is a sequence of
alphanumerics, but you can add other characters as part of
what jEdit considers to be a 'word', set on a global or mode basis
In addition, this behavior can be changed by remapping
these keystrokes to alternative actions whose names end with
pane of the
dialog box; see the section called “The Shortcuts Pane”.
