  • from the description in cua.el:
    ;; This is the CUA-mode package which provides a complete emulation of
    ;; the standard CUA key bindings (Motif/Windows/Mac GUI) for selecting
    ;; and manipulating the region where S-<movement> is used to
    ;; highlight & extend the region.

    ;; This package allow the C-z, C-x, C-c, and C-v keys to be
    ;; bound appropriately according to the Motif/Windows GUI, i.e.
    ;;      C-z     -> undo
    ;;      C-x     -> cut
    ;;      C-c     -> copy
    ;;      C-v     -> paste

    I found a way of changing Crtl-Space to Shift for marking text, but my fingers are so used to emacs now that I gave it up - and I can't remember what it was any longer - sorry!

    • I guess pretty much everything I could even think of asking for in Emacs, someone else has already done it :)

      However, remapping C-x would break like 90% of the keyboard combos in Emacs itself and make my fingers incompatible with all other emacsen in the world, or at least of the one in the office next door.
      • You are right - emacs is like Perl - someone has already done it! For emacs the challenge is to find where, as there is no CEAN!

        Ctrl-X functions "normally", for emacs that is, except when you have selected a region, so no (big) problem there.
