The GridControl seems to be lacking a common feature. When editing a single cell that contains multiple words (spaces between words), pressing Ctrl+Left Arrow and Ctrl+Right Arrow does not move the cursor from word to word, but instead deactivates the cell and moves the current cell to the far left or right in the grid (good behavior for when the cell is not editing). Compare with Excel. Is there an option to enable this or plans to implement it? If no option exists, is there an easy way to implement this myself?

You can get this behavior by handling CurrentCellKeyDown. Here is a little sample.

Awesome - thanks! Also, you can count this as a vote to make this a standard in the grid.
