MoveToNextWord behaves differently than Visual Studio

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

I've noticed a situation where using the MoveToNextWord feature behaves a little differently than visual studio.

Take the following C# code that appears on lines 53-60 of the sample application:

public int this[int index] {
    get {
        return array[index];
    set {
        array[index] = value;
place your caret before the ']' on the first line of the sample. You should be at Line 53, Col 34. Now press CTRL+RIGHT to move to the next word. The caret moves over by one position to the space after the ']' at Line 53, Col 35. In Visual Studio, the same scenario would have moved the caret to the '{' character at Line 53, Col 36.

Another situation...

Take the following C# code that appears on line 30 of the sample application:

return "\"Quoted \u0065 text:\" " + text + @"Verbatim \u0065";
Place the caret before the last quotation mark at Col73. Press CTRL+RIGHT. The caret jumps past the ";" and moves to the end of the line. In Visual Studio, the caret would have moved just before the ";". Interestingly enough, pressing CTRL+LEFT picks properly moves the caret before the ";". So it takes two CTRL+LEFT combinations to get back to where you were before one CTRL+RIGHT command.

Can anything be done to make this behavior more consistent with Visual Studio?
