View Full Version : [FIXED] Allow Shift-Del, Ctrl+Ins and Shift-Ins equivalents on Windows

10 Apr 2012, 12:23 AM
While editing code in Sencha Designer the CTRL-X, C, V combinations work perfectly on Windows.

The Shift-Del, Ctrl-Ins and Shift-Ins key combinations are equivalents on Windows that currently don't work while editing code on Sencha Designer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_of_keyboard_shortcuts

I would like those equivalents to work also while code editing. The reason for this is that while coding you're near the Del key often anyway, so it makes sense to be able to use Shift-Del for the cut-action.

I'm on the latest version of Sencha Designer 2.0.0 build 363.

I wasn't even aware of these key combos. We'll put it on our list in the future as a low priority, nice to have.

Yeah, I understand you take it as a low priority. I'm not sure about if others use the alternative key combinations...

I just find my self doing Shift-Delete so often and discover that it hasn't been copied into the clipboard which becomes frustrating.

Hopefully it's just as low as an impact as it is a priority for you guys to add this as a nice small feature.

Any "roadmap" for this? I am an heavy user of keyboard short cut and I use more SHIFT combination for copy/paste...

It's on my todo list for the current sprint.

This is fixed and will be in the next release.

Copy and Paste work OK, but "Cut" capability when using Shift-Del doesn't work in Sencha Architech 2.1.0 Build: 670.

People that work with the mouse to the left of the keyboard (like myself) tend to rely on the right side of the keyboard for Cut-Copy-Paste operations.

Hope it gets fixed soon.

You are correct, this is still broken.

Standard windows behavior appears to be:
- Shift delete without selection, delete character to the left
- Shift delete with selection, cut

As of v2.1.0 Build 678, the Shift-Del key is still deleting the selected text rather an cutting the selection to the clipboard.
