  • control+enter shortcut replaced with more user-friendly enter and its

semantics is slightly changed.

This is a great improvement I must say. Small change, but really alters

the experience for new users.

I think another great small change would be to make "Home" and "End"

move to the beginning and end of the line. I use Home and End all the

time and feel constrained when they only move to the beginning or end of

the current word/cell.

Also, if Ctrl-Home and Ctrl-End could move the cursor to beginning and

end of the document, that would be nice too.

Another idea: When you're editing a cell that does not allow the

creation of new cells (with enter) and that cell is part of a vertical

cell collection, I think it would be nice if you make enter move the

cursor to the next cell in the vertical collection.

Look at the SubstituteActionTutorial Book model. When you've entered

author, it seems natural to me that Enter would move the cursor to the

Publishing field.

Hi all,

another usability feature I'd suggest is to automatically show the list of possible suggested values for a cell, without requiring the user to hit ctrlspace. While I think that have to press ctrlspace is the correct choice for a text editor like IDEA's, I think that a fully structure-based editor like MPS could gain a lot of speed with this feature. At least, make it optional.
