How can I use the Ctrl + Arrow windows shortcut to navigate through a text sting on a Mac?
Have you tried to use ⌥-arrow (ALT-arrow)?
Create a file named DefaultKeyBinding.dict in ~/Library/Keybindings and add the following text:
"^\UF702" = (moveWordLeft:);
"^\UF703" = (moveWordRight:);
This will reassign Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right from their default moveToBeginningOfLine/moveToEndOfLine to movement by words, the same action as performed by Opt-Left/Right.
