In CUA emulation mode, Epsilon recognizes most of the key combinations commonly used in Windows programs. Other keys generally retain their usual Epsilon function.

To enable this emulation, press Alt-x, then type cua-keyboard and press <Enter>. Use Alt-x epsilon-keyboard <Enter> to return to Epsilon's default key assignments.

The table shows the CUA key combinations that differ from Epsilon's native (Emacs-style) key configuration. In addition, various Alt-letter key combinations not mentioned here invoke menu items (for example, Alt-f displays the File menu in CUA mode, though it doesn't in Epsilon's native configuration).

Many commands in Epsilon are two-key combinations starting with Ctrl-x or Ctrl-c. In CUA mode, use Ctrl-w instead of Ctrl-x, and Ctrl-k instead of Ctrl-c. For example, the command delete-blank-lines, normally on Ctrl-x Ctrl-o, is on Ctrl-w Ctrl-o in CUA emulation.
