Delete key vs. backspace

Postby Stratelier » Wed Jul 01, 2015 4:25 pm

I'd like this option to include the Backspace key too.

Edit - I mean, I want to be able to use the Backspace key without it pulling up subsequent rows.

Okay, I see. But let me rephrase that....

Why is this necessary at all? Is it that much of a chore for you to use the delete key?????

Press Shift+Up (repeat as necessary), then press Delete.

Porblem sloved. :^)

Seriously though, I don't see why this is necessary either.

In CFamiTrackerView::OnKeyBackspace() alter the line "pAction->SetDelete(true, true);" so that the second "true" becomes a "false"; to allow the same behaviour while a selection is created, change the ACT_EDIT_DELETE_ROWS parameter a few rows above to ACT_EDIT_DELETE.

Problem solved.

Has anyone seen any case where pulling up all rows between cursor and end of frame is a desirable thing? Because I haven't...

It is furthermore not helped by my laptop's placement of Backspace and Delete right next to each other. It's happened often enough that pressing Ctrl+Z to undo is is almost a reflex by now.

Everyone except yourself; otherwise QWERTY keyboards do not need separate keys for Delete and Backspace.

That is like saying "Has anyone seen any case where pulling up all characters between cursor and end of line is a desirable thing?" for text editors. (The same applies even for overtype text-editing modes in early text editors.)
