How can I use Ctrl in key combinations?

Hey, I want to not use a mode for resizing, but to resize with $mod+ctrl+arrow keys.

The following keybinding doesn't work:

bindsym $mod+Ctrl+Left resize shrink width 2 px

I think you should spell Control and not Ctrl. On my setup, I'm using the Ctrl key to move workspaces from one screen to another like this, and it works:

bindsym $mod+Control+Left move workspace to output left
bindsym $mod+Control+Right move workspace to output right
