  • Bug Ctrl + Left no longer moves cursor to beginning of word

    Dear Foxit,

    In 5.14 I used to be able to move to the beginning of a word (relatively to current cursor position in text-section mode) by pressing ctrl + left and to the end of a word by pressing ctrl + right
    I'm dismayed to discover that I'm no longer able to do this in 5.3.
    I do a lot of text highlighting and use an Autohotkey script to quickly highlight a arbitrary segment of a text between two words. The script crucially relies on the ctrl + left / ctrl +right functionality to allow me not to have to precisely click on word boundaries. It's a huge time-saver.
    I dearly wish Foxit could consider restoring the ctrl + left / ctrl +right, seeing as it is provided by Acrobat, PDF X-change and so on.
    Thank you very much in advance,
