I’ve been using jupyter notebook since 2016. I run jupyter in docker containers based on the official images (e.g. JupyterLab 2.2.5 from jupyter/scipy-notebook) and interact with them from macOS. I’ve found that in the latest release, macOS keyboard shortcuts no longer work as expected.
Select-All: With a cursor inside a cell, I press Cmd-A. I expect to select all text, instead nothing happens.
Copy: I run a cell that produces some output, I select some text in the output and press Cmd-C. I expect the selcted text to be copied to the clipboard. Instead the clipboard isn’t updated.
Emacs-based shortcuts: macOS allows you to move to start of line with Ctrl-A and end-of-line with Ctrl-E for most text boxes. This used to work great in jupyter, but no longer works in this version of lab.
I’d like to make use of the enhancements of JupyterLab, but I’d like the keyboard to behave the same as it has done in notebooks for the past years.
Ideally I’d like to do this with one toggle rather than manually searching through tens of entries in a JSON.
