Make Word act like Emacs

Follow-up to Mac Goodness from Neuroimaging Statistics Tips & Tools

I’ve gone on about how great it is to change keyboard shortcuts with System Preferences -> Keyboards, but not all Word commands are accessible through that facility. In particular, it is possible to make Word respond to Emacs editing commands!

In Word, go to Tools -> Customize Keyboard… . Under Categories, select “All Commands” to show everything. In the Commands box find a command, and then add the corresponding key as follows:

  • Command StartOfLine – Shortcut Control+A
  • Command EndOfLine – Shortcut Control+E
  • Command EditCut – Shortcut Control+W
  • Command EditPaste – Shortcut Control+Y
  • Command EditFind – Shortcut Control+S
