To test/reproduce:

Open a Finder window with multiple tabs and highlight an item (file/folder). Then press return to begin editing the name of the item.

On previous versions of macOS, the following standard text shortcuts would select from the cursor to the beginning or end of the line:

shift + cmd + : Select from cursor to beginning of line

shift + cmd + : Select from cursor to end of line

Now, in 10.14 Mojave, it seems that using that shortcut now switches tabs and cancels editing the file name. Is there a way to change it back to the way it used to be so it's still consistent with text editing in other environments?

Please note: I know I can use the function key to select to the beginning/end of line. I'm not looking for alternatives.
