Gets emitted when the user initiates a cursor movement.
The move_cursor signal is a [keybinding signal](class.SignalAction.html). If the cursor is not visible in
text_view, this signal causes the viewport to be moved instead.
Applications should not connect to it, but may emit it with emit_by_name if they need to control the cursor programmatically.
The default bindings for this signal come in two variants, the variant with the <kbd>Shift</kbd> modifier extends the selection, the variant without it does not. There are too many key combinations to list them all here.
- <kbd>←</kbd>, <kbd>→</kbd>, <kbd>↑</kbd>, <kbd>↓</kbd> move by individual characters/lines
- <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>←</kbd>, etc. move by words/paragraphs
- <kbd>Home</kbd> and <kbd>End</kbd> move to the ends of the buffer
- <kbd>PgUp</kbd> and <kbd>PgDn</kbd> move vertically by pages
- <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>PgUp</kbd> and <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>PgDn</kbd> move horizontally by pages
