Ah nice, I didn't know about the other one, but yeah "navigation" is indeed brilliant because it also navigates backwards/forwards across files ...

left and right would have been more logical, but somehow that didn't work

Ctrl + LeftArrow/RightArrow don't work because they are Windows keyboard controls (also in pretty much all OSes). They navigate to the left and right of words.
For example (| represents cursor):
"I am some tex|t." => LeftArrow => "I am some |text."
"I am| some text." => RightArrow => "I am some| text."

Yeah that's why I chose different key combos for nav prev/next :)
