Ctrl+Backsp in inline rename doesn't work

Post by *Thany » 2019-06-05, 19:24 UTC

Rename a file inline. How: It's F2 for me, as it should be. Not sure if that's made the default yet, but otherwise just click a file twice.
Now set the caret left from to a word, and press Ctrl+Del.
Example: This is a |good filename.mp4 --> This is a |filename.mp4
The word to the right of the caret will be deleted. This is correct.
Now set the caret right from a word, and press Ctrl+Backsp.

Result: nothing happens. Ctrl+Backsp while inline-renaming a file does absolutely nothing.

Expected: it should delete a word left from the caret. As it does in virtually every application.
Example: This is a good| filename.mp4 --> This is a | filename.mp4

Possibly the same issue: in the Find Files tool in the "Search for" field, Ctrl+Backsp inserts a rectangle character.

Tested in TC 9.22a on Windows 10.

This has been discussed before. Ctrl+Backspace has been disabled because it inserted a square "character" into the edit box instead, and Ghisler couldn't get Ctrl+Backspace to work like in other applications (deleting the word left of the caret).

I also quietly wish Ctrl-Backspace would work (delete the word left form the cursor).

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Ctrl+Backspace isn't a standard hotkey in Windows edit boxes. I have added it manually to the command line edit box. I will check whether I could add it to other dialog elements too.
