[racket] Keyboard shortcut for switching between definitions area and interactions window

Thank you for your explanation. For myself I have no problems with the
shortcuts. Sometimes my own keybindings file may not add all I want. In
those cases I select another shortcut not yet occupied by another shortcut.
I prefer to behave my system consistently over different applications. And
with some precautions, it appears to be doable pretty easily. As you may
already guessed, I am a very dumb user when it comes to use different
systems. Therefore I try to keep all of my applications to respond in the
same way to any shortcut I may imagine off. As I am not able to produce
Scrible or HTML code, I use MsWord frequently. It is not difficult to make
DrScheme and MsWord act in the same way for my own shortcuts.
Thanks, Jos

PS: What would be realy nice is to have a scribble interface that allows you
to select formats as in MsWorrd. I have thought of preparing such an
application by myself, but I don't understand enough of scribble in order to
complete such an assignment.

Yes, they are and sorry I wasn't clear. There is one major way in
which they are platform-dependent and a few minor ways. The major was
is that the menu keybinding take precedence over the ordinary buffer
keybindings when they overlap and under windows this happens a lot
since many keybindings we copied from Emacs and so begin with control,
but under windows the menu shortcut prefix is also control. So things
like "c-x;o" get mapped to "cut; insert an 'o'" under windows and
"switch windows" on the mac (where the menu shortcut is a separate

There is a way to disable the keybindings in menus under windows (in
the preferences dialog) that you can use to change this behavior if
you want the Emacs ones to "shine thru".
