Create and Modify Keyboard Maps
Keyboard maps are files within Case CATalyst that contain entries which determine the action that occurs, in Edit or Manage Dictionary, as a result of pressing a key or combination of keys on the keyboard. Sometimes they are called "shortcut keys." For example in the Default keyboard map Ctrl-j is assigned to Job Define while Ctrl-b is assigned to the Break command.
Keyboard maps are customizable. Key assignments can be modified to do a different function, play a macro, or not have any assignment. Case CATalyst comes with two keyboard maps, Default, and Cat4kbd. The Default keyboard map using many of the common keyboard commands found in other software; Ctrl-c (copy), Ctrl-v (paste), Ctrl-f (search), etc.
The Cat4kbd keyboard map emulates commands similar to EZ Keys. The keys i, k, l, and h are Move Up, Move Down, Move Right, and Move left. The j key does a J-define while the m key marks the word to the right of the cursor. If you are used to using EZ Keys, the CAT4kbd keyboard map may be more familiar to you.
