Is it possible, to modify the speed of the (keyboard) cursor if you hold one key down.? I think it is too slow and I want to tweak it, to let the cursor move at a higher speed. This might be something for the config.txt.
Alternatively, a common shortcut (at least on windows) seems to be Ctrl + [Arrow Keys] to jump from 'word' to 'word'. This appears to also work in Pico-8's editor too, although I don't if the shortcut is the same on Mac or Linux. Hope that's helpful.
Edit: Woops looks like I mis-remembered. Apparently Ctrl + (left/right) Arrow Key jumps every four chars, not every word. [insert smacking head on desk here]
On macOS that is definitely not the case.
I can dial down the repeat rate in System Preferences and in pico8 it goes slow, and then dial it back up and it goes fast. I do not even have to restart pico8 to see the changes.
Are you guys on Windows or Linux?
Aha, there was a slight misunderstanding, or better an interesting behavior.
The Key-Repeat speed works like you showed in the video, but this is not true for the movement of the cursor using the cursor keys. This speed is somehow fixed and seems, that it can't be modified.
