I made sure my keybindings are set properly as yours. For example, in 2.0.1, I could move the cursor backwards by typing ctrl + b with the checkbox ticked and by typing command +b with the checkbox unticked, and in 2.0.2, I have to type command + b in both the cases.
I'm thinking of going back to 2.0.1 and waiting for a bugfix instead of using additional softwares or macros. But thanks for your advice. stiv.
