backspace won't work in text input widget
Since going to gfx widget, backspace,del, won't work in text input fields(widgets). Mouse text selection isn't working too?ggood eithere
One problem per bug report, please. These sound like dups, but I can't find the right bug numbers to close them. over to beppe
using build 19992909 on a win95 machine, the backspace function does have some odd behavior. If I have a segment of text: This is a test -- and if I place the cursor at the end of the line and press the backspace key it works fine until I get to the space. I select backspace, the space is removed, I select backspace again expecting the character to the left to be removed, that is not what happens. Instead, the cursor is stationary, the character is not removed. I must select the backspace a second time for the character to be removed. I will check out other comments and open new bugs if I can reproduce them.
is this linux-specific? liviu--does this work for you again (has it been fixed)?
sujay, is this linux only? joe and akkana, please decide who owns this and assign to yourself. guessing akkana first, since the claim is that it's a linux bug.
Beth said in her comment to the bug report that this happens on Windows too. It doesn't sound like a key handling problem, since the description said that backspace worked fine until it hit a space.
yep ! this is fixed, and looks like a duplicate to bug #14392. Somebody please investigate :o)

[bugday] these bugs aren't the same. This bug is probably related to gfx scrollbars, however it was marked a duplicate of an editor bug. I'm re-opening. I have a feeling that there is another bug that this is a duplicate of, but I can't find it.

I'm not clear as to why this was reopened, I am not longer able to reproduce the error, which is probably the result of 14392 being resolved. Marking this fixed. Sujay -- pleae verify fix on Mac and Linux -- thanks. I have verified on win32
