Ctrl+Arrow should jump to the next word


Although indenting is a great feature, Ctrl+Arrow is a well known shortcut that jumps from one word to another.
It's really annoying for the user when the "default" shortcuts are changed and this is considered a bad practice.

Tab would be perfect for that, but in a web environment tab jumps to the next field so we can't use it too.

As a suggestion, indenting could be set to Ctrl+i to indent one level and Ctrl+shift+i to return one (like tab and shift tab).

I would really appreciate the change of this quite annoying behavior as well! (+1)

Wouldn't be a bad idea to get an inspiration from Gmail which uses Ctrl + [ or Ctrl + ] for list indentation.

Totally agree. I've been thrown off by this too many times. Ctrl+Arrow is almost universally used to jump to next/previous words outside of Todoist.

Keep the indenting shortcut key by all means, but don't use Ctrl+arrows that's been almost ingrained as jump to next/prev word as second nature in many users.
