Not quite. The backspace key deletes the character to the left of the
cursor's position while the Del key deletes the character to the right of
the cursor's position. I want to make ctrl-d function like the Del key.
Yes sorry, that is correct. They are different deletions. The "Delete"
performs what is also called a "forward delete".
Have looked at the project source code. The forward delete action is among
a class of actions directly implemented in the edit shell and assigned to
the keyboard (symkey) for the Delete key.
It is not available to assign to additional Keyboard shortcut or menu
Doing so would require creation of an UNO commond to perform the deletion,
that would be available for use in UI customization.
That seems like something that should be corrected. What other actions
are directly implemented like that?
In the meantime, would it work to define a macro that does
forward-character and then backward-delete, and bind it to Ctrl-D?
