cmd+0 keyboard shortcut from Live Editor to Command Window

12 views (last 30 days)
This shortcut works if I'm in a regular Editor window, but not when I'm in a Live Editor. Also, from the Command Window, shift+cmd+0 takes me back to the Live Editor just fine. I am using R2016b on a fully updated Mac.

As mentioned in the following documentation link (as of MATLAB R2016b), Live Editor ignores most Editor preferences, including custom keyboard shortcuts and Emacs-style keyboard shortcuts.
However, the development team is aware of this feature request, and they might consider it for a future release of MATLAB.

The absolute uselessness of the development program... It's 2021... and the live editor still ignores most editor preferences...

Has this been fixed for Matlab 2017 or planned for any future releases? I consider the UI broken when keyboard shortcuts do not obey user settings.
I use a standard keyboard on my mac and simply want the home and end buttons to work for navigating to beginning and end of line rather than beginning and end of file. This is not only annoying but enough for me to consider not using the Live Editor entirely. There shouldn't be different unsettable keyboard shortcuts for Live Editor!

Agreed, this is so frustrating and is still a problem 4+ years later with R2020b. It would be great to have live editor shortcuts customizable like the normal command window and other areas.

@MATLAB staff: wouldn't it be easier for users if there was one command to toggle between the MATLAB Command Window and the live editor? I am not sure why there are two different commands for 'each direction'.

Is this shortcut still available on Matlab latest versions ? And what about the ones listed here ? (I am running R2017b, but will soon update to R2019b.
I tried it (Ctrl + 0 under W10 to switch from editor window to command window), but unsucessfully until now.
Help much appreciated, thank you.
Edit : shortcuts in the link must still work I guess since it is supposed to work with R2019b as mentionned. Is there then a place to activate / enable them in Matlab preferences ? -still doesn't work on my 2017b-
