Thanks for your nice reaction. We indeed plan to implement bindings for
forward-word and backward-word, although we did not have time to do so.
Also, we are having a discussion on how to reorganize the keyboard


If you have any ideas, then you are welcome to post your comments.
In fact, we do not know yet what to do for the shortcuts involving
arrow keys: there are many other possible uses for them and
we have not yet made a final choice...

I also would like to note that there are some TeXmacs users who want to
build a data base with freely distributable texts for scientists
(at the moment limited to physics). If you want to join this effort,
please contact us again. I would like to make the texts available by CVS at


as examples of texts that you can write with TeXmacs.

Best wishes, Joris
