Ctrl + Backspace does not work, as it works in almost every other programme by default. I'd like to delete the whole word on the left of the cursor, but when I pres Ctrl + Backspace, it deletes the word on the right. But exactly this function is already covered by Ctrl + Delete. Is there a way to change this behaviour? I didn't find any way till now to delete the whole word on the left of the curser in one simple step.

Ctrl+Delete doesn't delete the whole word. To do that you need to do Ctrl+Shift+Right, then Delete. And to delete the previous word you can do the same with Ctrl+Shift+Left, then Delete.

In my case, it does delete the whole word on the right of the cursor when I press Ctrl + Delete as in all the other programmes. Maybe it's country-specific setting, I have no idea, why it doesn't work like that in your case. Thank you for your suggestion, that's how I do it now. But I hope it's possible to enable the "normal" Ctrl + Backspace function to delete the whole word on the left of the cursor somehow. Altough it's just a second of time it would save, it would make me very happy... 🙂

It's more likely to do with OS version and/or Acrobat version differences.

Hi guys! I am having the same problem! I searched everywhere online and still no solution. I am using Adobe Acrobat DC Pro and I have problems with Ctrl + Backspace. Please tell me how to fix it.
