Description

18 years ago
Alt+BackSpace is one of the "old" Windows shortcuts, along with Ctrl+Delete for
copy, Shift+Insert for paste and Shift+Delete for cut ( except that it deletes
instead, but that's another bug )-:

The code in platform*Bindings.xul would look something like this:

<key id="winAlternateUndoKey" keycode="VK_BACK"
 oncommand="
  var controller = document.commandDispatcher.getControllerForCommand('cmd_undo');
  controller.doCommand('cmd_undo');" modifiers="alt"/>

I'm not clear why we define any of those "old windows shortcuts" on Unix in the
first place.  The only person who can answer this is whoever decided that we
should have the others on Unix.  Ben?  Was that you, or do you know who made the
decision?

This is a standard shortcut on Windows.  Clearing [rfe] from summary and 
raising severity from trivial to minor.
Severity: trivial → minor
Summary: [RFE] Want Alt+Bksp shortcut for Undo → Alt+Bksp shortcut for Undo

Note:  I haven't had a chance to actually try this patch in a Windows build
(since I don't have one today).

The 02/28/01 13:33 fix seems to work in TextWidgets, but not Composer or MsgCompose.

This bug is fixed but won't appear to work in Composer until bug #71326 is fixed.
