It took me a while to figure out what was going on, but here's the problem. I want to highlight a few characters, so I type ⇧→ to expand a selection. HOWEVER, ⇧ is just above the function key (fn), and fn→ takes me to the next document in Scrivenings mode. Fumbling the wrong key is a constant annoyance. Is there any way to avoid this?

Other than finger training, I can’t think of anything easy as both of those are part of the system default key mapping. That leads to the not so easy way, and that is to modify your keymappings—not for the lighthearded!

In fact it’s odd that Fn→ does what you describe. The normal behaviour for that would be End, bringing you to the very bottom of the editor without moving the cursor. That’s what is going to happen in most applications at any rate.
