Keyboard Shortcut developers MUST add!I know, I should blog more. *yawn*
So, here's something I do hundreds of times a day, the quick way.
If I was to do it the slow way, it would take at least twice as long.
So I'm sharing..
I have no idea what text editor/IDE you use, but surely there is a way to configure macros for keyboard commands and surely there is a way to assign those macros to shortcuts. Good.
So, create a macro that does these simple things.
And assign it to a keyboard shortcut (I use Ctrl+\). Boom! Your cursor is right back to where it was before you started scrolling / searching / replacing / etc..
I take this for granted, but just remembered that it's a thing I actually need to setup when I switch over to a new editor, for some reason -- acquaintance sent me a link to a new editor and I did this shortcut forgetting that it's not a standard thing, which it most definitely should be. Add: menu item
wiggle undo (ctrl + \)
I know this is doable in Kate (KDE Desktop) and Notepad++ (Windows) and probably all decent editors (and if your favourite editor/OS can't do it; as ever; bug the developer -- this is how we change the world; by bugging people) so you have no excuse not to give yourself this functionality and save oodles of time you can better spend elsewhere.
ps. This title is a bit click-baitey. Apologies. Google steals my shit then hates me. Go figure.
