Key mapping

All shortcuts can be edited in Environment / Editor Options / Key mapping. See Key Mapping.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X has quite different key policies. For example most F keys are used by the OS, there are no menu Alt shortcuts and there are large guidelines (contrary to linux and windows where only a few keys work the same under all programs).

The apple human interface guidelines for key bindings can be seen here: [1]

Xcode is Apple's own development environment. Here are the Xcode shortcuts: [2]

A Mac OS X key map is available for lazarus and can be set via IDE menu / environment / editor options / key mapping / choose scheme / Mac OS X.
