Glad to hear it.  I was starting to think I was doing something
wrong.

Sure I have to move my hand to find the arrow keys, but the keys
are easy to find without looking.

More important, every once in a while I actually use a program other
than Emacs.  (There I admitted it.)  My mind is too feeble to adapt
to using different keystrokes for the same thing.
