(In GNU Emacs this memory is less important, because one always can [set a mark and] start an incremental search without having to leave the text area and go into a search window or form. So there is no interrupt. Similarly with search&replace. This working mode is more TeX like, which also mixes text and commands.)


This is qvailable via the Apple Text Framework. You can set a mark, swap point and mark and go to mark using a DefaultKeyBinding.dict file placed in ~/Library/KeyBindings. Then it is available to all apps that use that Framework.

See KeyBindings.zip at my download site, <https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10932738/index.html>.

Good Luck,
