[SOLVED] [REQUEST] Keyboard Shortcut to Shift Paragraphs Up and Down
There is a small feature that has been added to a number of text editors that is of great value when drafting or editing copy. It is the ability to shift a paragraph of text up or down using a keyboard combination of, say Cntrl+Cmd+ Up arrow or Down arrow. Sometimes it's Opt+CMD+Arrow, and in BBEdit it is Cntrl+Arrow but the specifics don't really matter given shortcut mapping in Preferences.
Originally part of the MS Word keyboard shortcuts (and WordPerfect and AmiPro back in the Dark Ages) the feature was never included in core Apple functionality, but was added over time to WriteRoom, TaskPaper, Folding Text, Notational Velocity, NVAlt, NVUltra, IA Writer, BBEdit, Ulysses, Scrivener, just about every writing tool except for Apple's Pages and TextEdit. I understand it's a rather trivial programing project to add the function, but I'm not a programer, but as a writer I know that I reach for this tool many times during the day and its not being in The Archive is always disappointing.
I hope that this small editing feature can be added to The Archive's functionality in the future.
