Emulation is the process of imitating another program. SlickEdit provides emulations of key bindings for 15 editors so that you can use the style to which you are accustomed, making your coding experience as efficient as possible.

CUA is the default emulation, which provides key bindings familiar to Microsoft Windows users. Emulations are provided for other popular editors including Vim, GNU Emacs, Brief, and more. If you are already an experienced user of one of these other tools, you will find that these emulations will help you get up and running quickly. Otherwise, you may find that the CUA emulation is best.

You can change your emulations at any time by selecting Tools > Options from the main menu.
Then expand Keyboard > Emulation.
