APL 26 is how you enter a hex code - this is one of the display byte attributes - actually 2 of them - I forget, oh yeah, HI and UL. APL is emulator-speak for EBCDIC hex codes - who uses APL anymore? Ducking!

I have the usual Windows forms for copy/cut/paste - I've added the unique copy-append ([edit-copyappend] is the action to use) and paste-next ([edit-paste-next] is the action) that are part of the emulator - useful for copying multiple items into one clipboard in green screen and pasting into consecutive screens - not so important when using RDP. I do find copyappend nice when I want to paste job info into WRKJOB - copy the job name, copyappend user name, copyappend job number - prompt wrkjob and paste - it fills the first 3 entries - nifty! At least, it is for me - maybe I'm easily amused!

I also have Shift-End that takes the cursor to the end of text in a field - [end field] is the action you want to assign to whatever key floats your boat.

I was looking at this thread
and looking at people's favorite keyboard mapping changes.

Bryan: You had a lot of changes and I find it hard to visually see what
they are, for example, C-KEY18=apl 26 . Did you make all those changes
or were several of them IBM defaults? If so, which ones did you change?
Paul: I think you hit on what a lot of people would really like to see:
copy, cut, paste, undo all working like windows.
Me: My biggest grind was the End key not going to the end of the typed
line like it does in Windows.

Any other personal favorites? One person mentioned they'd like it to work
like the LPEX editor. What in particular did you mean by that?
