Is there a one-key keypress to go to the last message, other than the End
Call me a Luddite, but (at least on my main machine) I use a non-extended
keyboard, so I "just" have normal control chars, and the numeric keypad.
I see that from the number-entry line, I can use ^Y and ^V. But in
normal the normal INDEX screen, those are simply page up and down.
(Same as - and space) So a multi-char workaround is 1<del>^V
I don't see ^Y and ^V even mentioned in the INDEX SCREEN help, so
I'm wondering if there's some other control key that already exists that I'm
missing, and/or if ^Y and ^V could be made to always be home and end,
instead of just at the # input field.
(*) Keyboard geekism follows:
My favorite keyboard ever is the "Apple Keyboard" ADB keyboard shipped
with the Mac SE, that I use through an ADB<>USB converter. It's the key feel
that I like, plus the control and escape keys are in the "right" places.
The latter issues can be fixed with third party keyboards (and the control-key
issue through OS X itself)..
Answer: Because it makes conversations flow in a nonsensical order.
Question: Why is top-posting wrong?
