Keyboard Personalities

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Customization »


The default keyboard personality for Wing implements most common keyboard equivalents found in a many text editors.

Before doing anything else, you may want to set Wing's keyboard personality to emulate another editor, such as vi, emacs, Visual Studio, Eclipse, XCode, or Brief. This is done with the Edit > Keyboard Personality menu or with the User Interface > Keyboard > Personality preference.

Under the VI/Vim and Emacs personalities, key strokes can be used to control most of the editor's functionality, using a textual interaction 'mini-buffer' at the bottom of the IDE window where the current line number and other informational messages are normally displayed.

Other preferences that alter keyboard behaviors include Tab Key Action and Completion Keys for the auto-completer.

In Wing Pro and Wing Personal it is also possible to add, alter, or remove individual keyboard command mappings within each of these personalities. See the following sub-sections for details.
