M-S-t are both unbound in my Emacs. Hence, when I press them, they are translated into
M-t. Fine, but I want to use them for a tweak on the original function, and therefore put these lines in my
(global-set-key (kbd "C-S-t") 'transpose-chars-backward) (global-set-key (kbd "M-S-t") 'transpose-words-backward)
The functions there are my own, and work fine when called via
This works for
C-S-t, but not for
M-S-t which still gets translated to
M-t. The message on
C-h k M-S-t confirms this.
It's not that it's impossible to configure
M-S- combinations in general, because
M-S-q do different things.
What causes this inconsistency and how can I get around it?
I'm running Aquamacs on Mac OS X 10.9.5.
Here you have two different ways to do what you want:
(global-set-key (kbd "M-T") 'transpose-words-backwards) (global-set-key [(meta shift t)] 'transpose-words-backwards)
I am not sure what causes the
(kbd "M-S-t") working differently from
(kbd "C-S-t"), btw. Time ago I became an adept to vector notation (
[(meta shift t)]) as I find it more predictable (I always get it right the first time, and with
kbd notation sometimes I needed a couple of tries).
C-h k M-S-tgives "M-t (translated from M-T) ...". In my experience,
C-h kalways tells you exactly what to give
