I recently upgraded to Word 2016 and a keyboard shortcut that I use very often seems to be missing.

In previous versions of Word, with the cursor positioned in a paragraph, Alt+Shift+up arrow would move the paragraph up one, and Alt+Shift+down arrow would do the opposite.

In Word 2016 that key sequence does nothing, and yet those keystrokes work just fine when composing or replying to a message in Outlook 2016.

Was this sequence removed from Word? Is there a way to reactivate it shorting of writing macro code?
