Frustrating BackSpace behaviour - deleting my model!


Is there any option to disable the Delete Object functionality of the BackSpace button? I use the keyboard for a lot of commands on Rhino and on Rhino 5 I’m finding myself accidentally deleting the object I have selected when I just wanted to clear the text input line. If I press backspace one too many times then suddenly my part is gone.

It’s incredibly frustrating and I see it as a user interface flaw. There’s already a dedicated delete button. Why do we need two ways to do it?


I seem to recall this being posted as a bug awhile back… When in the text box, using the backspace should not delete selected objects once all the text is gone…

Otherwise, the fact that the backspace key functions as a delete key is extremely useful. Score one for Windows which has a dedicated “Delete” key on the keyboard…
