keybinding for expand selection not working



I tried to select paragraph using "expand selection" keybinding: Ctrl + Shift + Cursor up/down
but it's not working. Taking into account that I use emacs mode, tried to do the same with the usual emacs keys:
Meta + h but to no avail

Testing some other combinations I discovered that I can select whole paragraph using Ctrl + Shift + up (pressing UP twice) but you MUST be at the begginning of paragraph!!!!

any hint would be awesome
