I am running Mavericks on a new Macbook Pro. When I use the Ctrl and Shift keys together with the arrow keys, I get some sort of key codes as output in the terminal. I am pretty sure that this problem is new and that it didn't happen a few days ago. But I am not 100% sure. Anyway, this is what happens:
If I press Ctrl+← (Left arrow),
;5D is output in the terminal. Similarly:
- Ctrl+→ (Right arrow) outputs
- Shift+← (Left arrow) outputs
- Shift+→ (Right arrow) outputs
As I mentioned, I am pretty sure that before today I could use those shortcuts to move between words and select text. Has anyone seen this before? I have already looked through some of the existing questions about arrow key shortcuts, but I have found no references to this exact problem.
Also, note that I have turned off the keyboard shortcut that moves between desktops using the Ctrl + arrow keys.
