Description:
extending the text selection using keyboard (Shift + Left|Right)
works as expected only if the selection extends
to the right of the initial insertion point

Shift + Right extends the selection to the right
and subsequent Shift + Left reduces the rightmost boundary

Shift + Left extends the selection to the left
but subsequent Shift + Right extends the selection to the right
instead of reducing the leftmost boundary

I have only tested this in ttk::entry
