Can't select all (ctrl-A) in some dialog windows
« on: September 29, 2015, 03:25:28 pm »
In:
list-buffers
activate-files-project
activate-files-workspace
you can't do a select-all like you could in v19. I use this often to clean up my open files.

On another note, v19/v20 would allow you to hit ctrl-A after opening the list-buffers dialog and would put a non-printable character in the filter and search on it...

What emulation are you using? It seems to work in v19 and v20 in CUA emulation. In SlickEdit emulation (what I use), it doesn't work in either.

In any case, we will fix this in a future beta. Thanks for noticing.

I'm using CUA emulation. I'll try with default options in a bit...

If you rebound Ctrl+A in CUA emulation, then it would have broken it for the text box and combo box. In any case, this will be changed. Ctrl+A will almost be hardwired to select-all.

I am experiencing this issue in Brief emulation.
The following CUA selection keys do not work in the Brief ALT-B (list_buffers) window.

Alt-A
CTRL Up Arrow
CTRL Down Arrow
CTRL SHIFT Home
CTRL SHIFT End
CTRL HOME (HOME goes to top of list)
CTRL END (END goes to bottom of list)

Great - one more patch to drop :) I wasn't keen enough to request that in the past  :-[
Thanks, HS2
