Author/Date Control+backspace suggestion

When editing a reply or an email, when you press control+backspace it should delete the previous word. This is how Outlook works, and is a very useful little key combination.

Thanks

Actually the undo key is Alt-Backspace, and already works. Thats the standard, not Ctrl-Backspace.

Oh, I didn't know that. Which standard?

alt-backspace works for me, but it doesn't do what I was expecting. It seems to function more like the delete key.

If your entering text, then the opposite does appear to be deleting it.

The standard I'm refering to is Windows. All the Windows editors use that convention, so I'm just following that as best I can.

Btw, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace is "Redo".
