I'm new to After Effects.

 

On Mac, there is a text editing shortcut feature so we don't have to move our right hand to the arrow keys when editing text. For example

 

control + H : Delete one character

control + B : Move the cursor back one character

control + F : Move the cursor forward one character

control + K : Erase all text behind the cursor

control + E : Move the cursor to the end of the sentence

and so son.

 

However, when I make these entries in the text entry field of After Effects, there is no response.

I don't know what application you use that uses any shortcuts to edit text. Ctrl + B makes selected text Bold on the forum field in Pages or Word, but it does not work in Photoshop,  Illustrator, After Effects, Davinci, Final Cut, or any other image or video editing app I know of. Ctrl + H hides most apps on a Mac. Cmnd + H will also hide apps on Windows. 

 

The only keyboard shortcuts for editing text that I know of that could speed up text editing in After Effects are Ctrl/Cmnd + b for Bold and Ctrl/Cmnd + i for Italics.
