I have a habit of holding the shift key down while navigating occasionally.  When I do that and hit backspace, it acts like hitting the delete key, deleting in the opposite direction.  It would be great if this could be toggled on/off somehow.

Same thing bothered me while ago. There is a setting in "preferences.txt" you can change.
Find this:
editor.keys.shift_backspace_is_delete=true

and change it to false.

that was odd
I know it says don't edit preferences.txt while the IDE is open
it means it
I changed the setting but it had no effect
I restarted the IDE
no change
edit preferences.txt
after several times round the loop I twigged that it writes the settings back when you close the editor d'oh!

anyway - works a treat now smiley

And many other things as well should be easily change through the menus, like how the editor window behaves after restarting the program, default paths and so on....

I haven't had gourage to test the IDE 1.0, is it any different? And here I go again, more complaints about the design available, I need to shut up right here!

Cheers,
