[code] Moving around and selecting text with arrow and modifier keys

I regularly use opt/alt arrow to move around and skip words and it works in macOS in every app I can think of. I can also select text by word by adding shift. So shift-opt/alt-arrow will select the word. Textadept doesn't use this shortcut, instead it uses shift-cntl-arrow to select text by word. I've been trying to relearn this but it's the only app that I use that does this and I can see it's not going to happen. Is it possible to remap this behavior? I'm afraid it's part of scintilla and isn't modifiable.
