  • Ticket #8290 – Description

    initial v1  
    22
    33Example:
     4
    45- I want to pick "California".
     6
    57- I start by typing "Cal" and it autocompletes with "Cal[ifornia]" (the bracketed portion is the selected portion)
     8
    69- I change my mind and want to pick "New York"
     10
    711- I press Ctrl+Backspace to clear the contents of the box beginning from the end of my selection
     12
    813- And now my textbox reads: "ifornia"! Oops!

    10 I just noticed that Firefox behaves in a similar way with text boxes, but it isn't a problem because it isn't autocompleting them for you. It's one thing if you manually make a selection, but it's another when you are just typing. In other words, this behavior breaks the natural typing habits.

    1217One suggestion would be to firstly delete anything selected whenever a Ctrl+Backspace is detected.
