SubWord navigation

Post by SammaySarkar » 23 Apr 2016 17:05

This could be very useful in any textbox, renames particularly.
cursor jump positions

Code: Select all

(tentative behavior suggestion: jump over consecutive caps, as in "XY")

Yes, but also the letter case changes should be considered as a new word, not only the space, "-" etc. I could indeed use this too.

OK, it's something for later (autumn 2016?). I really like the term "SubWord navigation".

Just for the record (and searches), maybe the correct wording is "CamelCase navigation" as found in most IDEs.

CamelCase would make more sense, yes.
