Hi, there!

If you want to dive into it, see:

TextEditor class >> #initialize*Shortcuts
TextEditor >> #dispatchOnKeyboardEvent:

If you would build your own subclass of TextEditor (or SmalltalkTextEditor), you could use it via "TextMorph defaultEditorClass: MyNewTextEditor" in all standard tools.

There is the SVI package by Steven Swerling. You can find in in the SqueakMap
package loader. It is probably 10 years out of date by now, so I don't know
if it still works. It would be worth trying this if you have an interest, and
if it does not work out of the box I'm sure there will be help available here
on the list.

Personally, I am a vi user but I do not bother with these things when working
in Smalltalk. There's just not all that much typing involved :-)
