I'm a veteran PC user. I have found it hard to get used to selecting, cutting, copying, and pasting text on Mac. My primary editor is TextMate. Specifically, I keep deleting and selecting the wrong text. On the PC, speech says the text, and when you press Delete, it works every time. For me on Mac, It seems like I have to put the cursor on the text, then go backward to delete it, and when I think I have selected the text to delete, wanting to remove a word, for example, I delete the wrong text.
How can I think of this correctly and get used to it?
