    Single keystroke Shortcuts I miss:
    1) Delete-to-end-of-line and Delete-to-beginning-of line
    2) Delete-word-forward and Delete-word-back
    3) Return to previous pointer position or cursor position (for those times when I accidentally jump somewhere I didn't intend. (A kind of Crtl-Z for cursor or pointer movement)
    4) Insert text with a special typeface or colour wherever I put the cursor (for adding comments or questions about existing text).

    Control-K will delete to the end of the line. Shift–Command–Left Arrow selects to the beginning, and then you can use Delete to delete it. Option+Delete and FN+Option Delete do words. For comments look into the change tracking stuff.
