Right; so there's currently no way you can change these, sorry.  
"Actions" are specific operations defined in the texworks code, and  
connected to menu items, buttons, shortcuts, etc; but the basic text- 
editing operations are handled directly by the Qt text editor code,  
without going through individual user-interface "widgets" and  
"actions" for each operation.

It should still be possible to provide a way to customize the key  
bindings at some point in the future, but it can't be done through the  
existing actions file mechanism.
