Wed 13 Mar 2019 10:05:15 PM UTC, original submission:

In the terminal octave program and other contexts, control-left-arrow and control-right-arrow (or alt-left-arrow and alt-right-arrow) move backward and forward one word on the command line. But this isn't working in the Command Window.

Editing Octave commands without this is cumbersome.

Affects at least 4.4.1 through default (6.0.0 development).

Looks like https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?49703, but it's a different bug with different causes (the Command Window implementation is different on Mac/Linux and Windows), so I'm opening a separate bug for this.

It looks like this might be related to both:
a) Qt:ControlModifier and Qt::MetaModifier are swapped on macOS (https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qt.html#KeyboardModifier-enum)
b) The default keyboard map for Mac in libgui/qterminal/libqterminal/unix/ExtendedDefaultTranslatorMac.h doesn't have mappings for Control-arrows
