Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Right Arrow / Left Arrow in tables
InDesign version 14.0.
The keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Right Arrow" to move one word to the right does not work when the text cursor is in a table. Same for "Ctrl+Left Arrow", to move one word to the left.
Fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign 2020.

It seems solved. Problem no longer occurs in update 15.0.

InDesign CC 14.02 and Mojave 10.14.5 after a clean install: still the same problem. After 8 months, really!!!
You're not alone. I'm having that problem too since my last Adobe update. I can use CMD-Arrow to navigate around text just fine in text blocks, but inside tables it's stopped working. It's sooooo annoying! I need it back now please!
When I have text in a table cell, CMD-Arrow keys are not working. I usually use CMD-Arrow to move around between paragraphs and words. It works fine outside of table cells, but not inside. It is however working fine inside table cells when I hold the shift key to select text, but not without the shift key, to just navigate my cursor between words and paragraphs. Please look into this bug and fix it for a future update. It's driving me crazy.

Adding my voice to this request for a bug fix.
Mac OS 10.14.2
Several months later…still a bug. Still a workflow killer.

This is a huge pain. Please fix this so that the Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right behaviour is consistent throughout the application. (Note that Ctrl-Shift-Left and Ctrl-Shift-Right, for selection, work as usual when the cursor is in a table.)
Same under Mac 10.13.6
I found out, that it is only not working for text in tables... text boxes work OK
same here, Windows 10
Before the update, you could move the curser by pressing the control key and the arrow keys. The Curser would jump one word by another in the appropriate direction. Now, that is not possible anymore. (InDesign 14.00.01)
Windows 7 Professional
Also the key for the right mouse klick (kontext menue) is not working anymore.
This is a killer bug. Please fix ASAP.
After an hour of googling can confirm this is an issue still, checking for an update to Indesign, hopefully it's been sorted as it's killing my work day! lol
not only in tables. also in „normal“ text columns. this drives me mad.
