 2   <tt class="keycap">C+LEFT</tt> and <tt class="keycap">C+RIGHT</tt>
 3   move the caret a word at
 4   a time. Holding down <tt class="keycap">Shift</tt> in addition to the above
 5   extends the selection a word at a time.
 6  </p><p>
 7   A single word can be selected by double-clicking with the mouse,
 8   or using the
 9   <span><b class="guimenu">Edit</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guisubmenu">More
10   Selection</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Select
11   Word</b></span> command (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+e w</tt>).
12   A selection that begins and ends on word boundaries can be created by
13   double-clicking and dragging.
14  </p><p>
15   <tt class="keycap">C+BACKSPACE</tt> and <tt class="keycap">C+DELETE</tt>
16   delete the word
17   before or after the caret, respectively.
18  </p><p>
19   <span><b class="guimenu">Edit</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Complete Word</b></span> (shortcut: <tt class="keycap">C+b</tt>) locates
20   possible completions for the word at the caret, first by looking in the
21   current edit mode's syntax highlighting
22   keyword list, and then in the current buffer for words that begin with the
23   word at the caret. This serves as a very basic code completion feature.
24  </p><p>
25   If there is only one completion, it will be inserted into the buffer
26   immediately.
27  </p><p>
28   If multiple completions were found, the longest common prefix is inserted into the buffer, and a popup is shown below
29   the caret position listing the completions.
30  </p><p>
31   To insert a completion from the list, either select it using the <tt class="keycap">UP</tt> and <tt class="keycap">DOWN</tt> keys and
32   press <tt class="keycap">ENTER</tt>, press a digit to insert one of the first
33   ten completions (1 is the first completion; 9 is the 9th; 0 is the 10th),
34   or click the desired completion with the mouse. To close the popup without inserting a
35   completion, press <tt class="keycap">ESCAPE</tt>.
36  </p><p>
37   Typing while the popup is
38   visible will automatically update the popup and narrow the set of
39   completions as necessary.
40  </p><p>
41   <span><b class="guimenu">Edit</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Word Count</b></span>
42   displays a dialog box with the number of characters,
43   words and lines in the current buffer.

45    The default behavior of the
46    <tt class="keycap">C+LEFT</tt>,
47    <tt class="keycap">C+RIGHT</tt>,
48    <tt class="keycap">C+BACKSPACE</tt> and <tt class="keycap">C+DELETE</tt> commands is to
49    stop both at the beginning and the end of each word. However this can be
50    changed by remapping these keystrokes to alternative actions whose names end
51    with <span><b class="guimenuitem">(Eat Whitespace)</b></span> in the
52    <span><b class="guibutton">Shortcuts</b></span> pane of the
53    <span><b class="guimenu">Utilities</b></span>&gt;<span><b class="guimenuitem">Global Options</b></span>
