In Anytype, text can either be selected via mouse (by dragging over it) or keyboard.
CTRL + [LEFT/RIGHT ARROW] will jump the text cursor to the previous/next word.
CTRL + SHIFT + [LEFT/RIGHT ARROW] will result in the corresponding word being selected.
While this does work in Anytype, backticks appear to be immune to any shortcuts containing
[ARROW KEY] (as if each character was as an individual word):
[ARROW KEY] combination to work with all text, including backticks.
