Delete key doesn't work in panel fields

Recommended Posts

The delete key doesn't appear to work in most, if not all fields in panels. For example, see below where the field in the Paragraph Panel is selected. If I press delete, the 12pt is removed, but as soon as I tab out or click elsewhere, it goes right back to 12pt. This is not at all how I'd expect it to work. Pressing delete means to remove it.

Same on Windows.

Not a beta problem, by the way, as it also happens on the released version 1.7.1.404.

I'm not convinced this is a bug, the field can't contain no value, so if you press delete and change focus (or press enter)  I would expect it to revert back to the last used value.

Are you expecting it to go to 0?

Ya, not a bug but an enhancement request. The delete key actually removes the number that's in the field, so the last thing I would expect is the original number to return.

With InDesign, it goes to zero in every field I've tried. If zero ends up not being a valid number (for instance, size) then an error pops up saying it's not valid.
