Currently, the cursor key are mapped to move in the document following
its structure. Remember that Thot is basically a structured document.
The left/right key are mapped to moving to the previous/next element at
the same level, upper select the father and down the first child.
However, the behaviour of the cursor keys can be modified. Have a look
at the /usr/local/thot/bin/thot.keyboard file :
Ctrl <Key>p: previous-line()
Ctrl <Key>n: next-line()
Ctrl <Key>b: backward-character()
Ctrl <Key>f: forward-character()
Ctrl <Key>a: beginning-of-line()
Ctrl <Key>e: end-of-line()
You can choose to have a more common mapping by using the cursor key
instead of the previous controls, e.g :
Ctrl <Key>Right: end-of-line()
This id NOT connected in any way with the keyboard remapping controlled
with the RemapModifiers resource. Please remove this resource if you don't
need to change the Thot behaviour regarding the X keyboard and modifier

Hope that the fact that Motif 2.0 was previously installed on the
system doesn't change the behaviour of our locally compiled version
of Motif 2.0 embedded in the Thot binary.
Hope this help,
