Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

It appears that the delete command is not working In the HTML pane.  If I place my cursor in the HTML edit window and press "delete" it should start removing spaces one at at time.  It doesn't.  Also, If I select a word and press "Delete", nothing happens. 
 
Spaces and words can only be deleted by backspacing.  Not a big deal but delete and backspace work in slightly different ways and both should be available because one can be more convenient than the other, depending on where your cursor is.
 
Update:  after not working repeatedly over a several day period, it's suddenly back to working every time.  I don't know why it wasn't working nor why it started working.

Hi Wayne, 
I see things seem to be working now.
I wasn't able to reproduce the problem here, so let's wait and see if i comes back.
I've had a few transient keyboard issues here; haven't been able to see what the common thread is, yet, but it could be related... or not.

And it's back to not working again.  Quite annoying because I'm deleting things all day log and the extra steps to uses backspace slow me down

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

Strange. A few questions for you:
  1. Program restart does not solve the issue ?
  2. Reboot solves the issue ?
  3. Sample IQBase solves the issue ?
  4. Current file with a previous version has this issue ?
  5. Fresh portable install to a new folder solves the issue ?
 

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

Continues to be an annoyance.  #1, #2, and #3 all "solve" the problem but it returns a short while later.  Did not try #4 and #5 yet.

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

Am I the only one experiencing this problem?  It's really an annoyance.  Re-starting InfoQube solves the problem but it returns a few minutes later, every time.  Really should be fixed unless it's a problem only with my system.

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

The "problem" is that I don't work in the HTML pane. I mostly work in the grid. I use the HTML pane mostly to clip web pages, articles and put pictures. All text work is done in the grid. Even thesis, novel, whatever... work.
So... I don't experieence that. Will see if I do.

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

Thanks, Amando.  I'm still working out how to best organize notes in InfoQube.  I really like the way the HTML pane is set up.  I find myself using the grid for "bullet points" and the HTML pane for detailed notes.  When I try to put everything in the grid I end up with a cluttered look (to my eye).  I have the same problem in Ecco Pro.
 
It just seems to be a cleaner look (again, for me) to have notes organized in bulleted lists with divider lines between them.
 
I also like the flexibility of the HTML pane:  I can use other programs to organize info (eg Excel) and copy/paste the result into the pane.

same here -

Wayne, I think you are the first person actively posting in the forum who is really using the html pane -
hence you've been having all the 'fun' finding the bugs...

Over the years, there has been many users who we're using extensively the HTML pane, mostly coming from UR or Evernote.
 
I'm not a big user of the HTML pane either, I prefer the flexibility of the grid but then again, I'm not a writer either.
 
I'll keep an eye open and try to find the cause. It is the only key which stops working ?
 

Re: Delete not working in HTML pane (sometimes)

Yes, delete is the only key I've noticed not working.
 
I'm not sure I'll stick with this note-taking format but I'm a little surprised others aren't using the HTML pane more.  The two-pane outliner seems to be the default
approach for information managers these days.
