VisualEditor: Ctrl+cursor (Opt+cursor on Mac) moves the caret too far in Hebrew
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Ctrl-Arrow is supposed to move the caret one word in the direction of the arrow.

In RTL wikis it moves too far. It looks like to goes to the next reference or the next sentence rather than the next word.

Version: unspecified
Severity: major

bzimport set Reference to bz64872.

On a Mac it's Alt-Arrow a.k.a. Option-Arrow.

This looks like just a problem with Hebrew. The new Unicode spec introduced a "HebrewLetter" group which we didn't add to the WordBreak checker.
