CTRL+DEL and CTRL+BACKSPACE in text boxes doesn't work

Bug Description

The expected bahaviour would be for these key combinations to delete a whole word (right / left of the cursor respectively).
Instead, only a single character is deleted, as if the CTRL key hadn't been pressed.

I don't think this should be difficult to fix, because CTRL+ARROW KEYS and CTRL+SHIFT+ARROW KEYS for jumping over / selecting whole words already works.

Note that it already works in the text editor dialog, but not when editing text on canvas.
