<backspace> issue

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, while experimenting with object pinning parameters, I experienced something that appeared similar, if not identical, to what others have reported in the past, i.e. pre-v1.10. Including on the Mac version.

At one point, the backspace key no longer worked as expected. Instead, a hollow square, similar to the one that is displayed if your font does not support a particular character/glyph, would appear.

Additionally, pressing the Delete key (with the cursor inside the text) would result in the entire current text frame disappear. (I believe, although I'm not 100% sure about this, that all other linked text frames on other pages also disappeared)

As with the other reports of similar issues, mine fixed itself by restarting APub and reloading the saved document.

Just a heads up to the devs that an old problem is still present in the code somewhere, although it seems rare and hard to reproduce.

If it does happen again switch on File > Save History with Document then do a Save as... to a new file name

There may be a clue there if we can follow your steps precisely

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.
