I want to use the key binding ⌥ (Alt) + W to save to the kill ring in Emacs mode. The default setting for ⌥ + W is 'Save to Kill Ring' in the for editor actions in Emacs mode. I try to use the shortcut in the editor and it keeps on inserting the symbol ∑. A slight annoyance is when I try to filter the keymap by ⌥ as the first stroke it shows some HUD display over the editor.
I'm using OS X 10.9.1. I would like to be able to use the kill ring just like in Emacs.
