Nano Shortcuts

I’ve know about nano and some it’s shortcuts. Today I explored them a bit more deeply.
So a list of shortcuts I find useful:

  • ctrl+K Cut the current line and put it in the nano clipboard (it’s not the same as the general clipboard)
  • ctrl+U Paste the line
  • ctrl+W Open search, type and hit enter. For the next match press alt+W
  • ctrl+Q Search backwards. For the next backward match press alt+Q
  • alt+U Undo
  • alt-E Redo
  • alt+C show the line number
  • alt-G Go to line number
