Applied Parameters: None


This command enables you to use the keyboard to move the text cursor to the right, in the current document, by one character at a time.


Access to this command is made using the Right Arrow keyboard shortcut only.


Launch the command to move the text cursor to the right by one character. Use the command repeatedly, to move the text cursor further characters to the right.


  1. If Word Wrapping is disabled, repeated use of this command will simply continue moving the text cursor rightwards along the current line. If Word Wrapping is enabled, the text cursor will eventually hit the margin/window and continue on the next line down.
