Shift+arrow keys.

How do I get shift+arrow keys to work the way it works in every other application on the planet? when I hold shift and press the up key I want the cursor to go up and highlight a line. when I press shift and the right key I want it to highlight a single character, just like it does everywhere else.

I have probably made things worse by googling solutions and changing random options that don't work.

Hi, 

"shift+arrow keys" works for me exactly how you expect it to work. It is default shortcut, please see https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/basic-editing.html?keymap=secondary_default_for_windows

 

What Keymap is set in your IDE https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/settings-keymap.html

Please try to find Action by Shortcut and see what is assigned on  ⇧↑ ?  Aldo, It is worth trying to reset settings to default or assing "Up/Down with Selection" manually.
