Text Editing Basic Features

End-users can navigate through text using either the keyboard or the mouse. The LEFT and UP (when using masks) arrow keys move the caret forward, while the RIGHT and DOWN (when using masks) arrow keys move the caret backwards. If the CTRL key is pressed when pressing an arrow key, the caret moves to the next or previous space character found. The HOME and END keys can be used to move the caret before the first character or after the last one respectively.

BACKSPACE key deletes a character before the caret. DEL key deletes a character after the caret. Both keys delete a selected text.
