Pretty simple. When I'm typing and editing, it's so much easier to just press the up/down arrows to navigate to the beginning or end of that specific line of text.

Is there a way to do this without having to press and hold the arrow keys or use the mouse for faster navigation?

Thanks!

Although it doesn't help you right now, NeoOffice 3.0 will have a feature to use the Control-A and Control-E key combinations to navigate to the beginning and end of the current line.

The NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access Program is currently in progress. If you are not a NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access Program member, you will be able to download NeoOffice 3.0 on March 31, 2009 for all users.

Hi Fran

I have been playing around with this feature since your post, but Control-E seems to go to the end of the para., and Control-A to the beginning of the para? ... Aha! Having checked the User Guide, I have now reminded myself Embarassed that end of line and beginning of line is reached via the "end" and "home" keys respectively.
Regards
Peter

Ahh yes. Thank you Peter. I do not know what my thought process was Embarassed

I have also been dipping into the User Guide to find answers to a number of my questions. Thank you for that document.

To add onto this, starting with NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access, we have implemented support for most Mac OS X "key bindings". Key bindings are standard key shortcuts for common text edit actions like "move to beginning of paragraph" or "move to end of document".

A list of common Mac OS X key bindings is here. Note that not all possible key bindings are supported and only those that OpenOffice.org 3.0 supports are supported in NeoOffice 3.0 Early Access:
