get back ctrl-left and ctrl-right features while editing tasks


While editing some text of a task the following shortcuts ctrl-left and ctrl-right do not provide the move to next or previous word that are expected in any text field. Instead it shifts the task left or right, which is something that can be done by clicking on some buttons, and which is plenty enough given the low frequency of such a feature.
Is there a way to disable this ?
Thanks and regards.

Hello Jerome,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to disable it, but please note that this shortcut is only available within project as that's the only way to create a sub-task. If you edit a task on the 7 days view or any other search result, it won't indent it.

Best regards,

Hi David, thanks for the explanation.
Unfortunately this is not quite right: in any non project view the ctrl+arrow keys are just mute ! (recall, the expected behaviour is to jump from word to word).
It would be great to keep standard fields (such as edit fields) with their expected and standard behaviour.
My 5 cents...
Kind regards

Agreed with Jerome!
This combination breaks habits of Windows users.
Voteboxes are both closed :-(
