keyboard handling bug shows with customization
« on: February 22, 2006, 06:24:51 am »
Hi there.  I've come across the following problem:

I have customized some of the keyboard shortcuts in Pelles to make them consistent with other compilers I use.  However, when changing Edit>Replace to use Ctrl+H, I noticed the problem.  

If I do this, then every time I press the Backspace key, up pops the replace dialog.  Now, I believe the backspace key is equivalent to Ctrl+H using ASCII, but this suggests the keyboard handling of Pelles is a little simplistic.  I would expect it to know the difference between a Ctrl+H keypress and a Backspace.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or a design decision, but it's a little annoying.  I have found other problems with Control key shortcuts since.  Sure enough, if you use the shortcut Ctrl+M for anything, then each press of return causes the shortcut to execute.

Anyway, it would be great to be able to use these shortcuts for menu items, without this unfortunate side effect.
Otherwise, the IDE is very nice.

PS: I'm using PellesC ver: 4.00.50 on Win2000ProSP4
