    Backspace key in Aleph GUI has unexpected results

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Original issue reported: When hitting the backspace key it backs the cursor one space and then jumps to the pane at the bottom of the screen (regardless of which pane the cursor is in when I hit backspace).

    Refined issue: Setting an 'Accel. Configuration'(keyboard shortcut) to 'Ctrl + H' or 'Ctrl + Shift + H' causes the backspace key to backup and then perform the action assigned to the key sequence. In our case 'Select HOL Record'.

    Select ALEPH => Options => Customize => Accel Configuration. Find the 'Menu Item' with 'Ctrl+[H]' or 'Ctrl+Shift+[H]' (in this case, "=> Select HOL Record") and remove the key sequence.
