Rapid Cursor Movement Up/ Down and Right/ Left to Boundaries

Revision of documents is simplified by providing an operator with the ability to rapidly move a cursor to the top or bottom of the page or to the right or left end of a line of text of a page. Boundary keys provide the operator with an easy way to accomplish this.

Boundary left/right keys move the cursor either left to a line begin position, a left margin or a temporary left margin, and position the left margin of the cursored line at the left edge of the display or move the cursor right to the line end.

Boundary up/down keys move the cursor either up to the first character of a page toward the beginning of a document or down to the last character of a page. If the cursor is already at the first character of a page and the operator presses the boundary up key, the system displays the previous page, and the cursor is positioned at the first character of the previous page, which is displayed as the first line. Similarly, if the cursor is already at the last character of a page and the operator presses the boundary down key, the system displays the following page, and the cursor is positioned at the last character of the following page. The last character of the following page is displayed as the last line unless the page has more lines than can be displayed.
