Adding, Deleting and Moving Lines

    For instance, you have typed some text.

    Press N/A to start the next line immediately.

  • To add a line before the current one, press N/A.

To duplicate a line or fragment

  1. Place the caret at the line to be duplicated, or select the desired fragment of text.
