[Help-nano] ctl-space and esc-space

Hi nanites,

I'm using nano v.1.2.4 from the Windows binary. I love this editor! But when I use it in a Windows 2000 command console, the ctl-space combination does not work for advancing by word. Instead I get spaces inserted. I tried this on three different machines.

I have a problem going backwards by word too. Using the escape-space combo (apparently I can't use the alt key in Windows because the OS grabs it), I have to take my finger off the escape key and press it again before hitting the space each time. So going back multiple words is very cumbersome. Is there any way to change this, or get the alt key to work instead?

Other than that, this is a really fine editor in a great tradition. Kudos to its authors & maintainers!
