Using Eclipse 2021-06, after having been away from Eclipse for 8+ years, I find some of the key binding configurations to be quite strange.

I use "Default" key bindings, but I specifically want to use Ctrl+A and Ctrl+E for beginning/start of line, and end of line respectively.

Getting Ctrl+A and Ctrl+E to, sort of, work the way I want isn't all that strange.

But ..

* How do I get Ctrl+A to behave like Home
* How do I get Ctrl+E to behave like End

I cannot find any key bindings for Home and End, yet they are active.

(It would also be nice if I could press a key or key combination and see which function/action it is currently assigned to. Maybe I missed something and this is already present?)

Tap Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+L twice.

Ctrl+A is probably a non-starter as it already has a meaning in text widgets
throughout the UI on two of the three big platforms: Select All.

I'm sorry, what's Ctrl+Shift+L twice supposed to accomplish?

Ctrl+A works fine to re-assign, but I can't get it to behave like Home, and I don't understand why.
