For me, changing perspectives fixes the delete key bug. It happens often enough, I just double-tap CTRL-F8 and go on.

Subject: Re: [WDSCI-L] Delete Key
This is happen to me several times, the del key stops works in RDI. But works in other software like Notepad and MS WORD.
Restart RDI several times to get it to work. It is what I have had to do REPEATLY....
You are NOT ALONE on this... I have tried to report it, and but unable to duplicate whatever triggers this to stop working...
With "Re-Start Software". Re-Starting the software, it seems to clear it for a little bit...
Do NOT COMPLAIN about it, instead use the Alt+D to delete code.
I have a ROCK-SOLID Logitech USB Keyboard, not a wireless keyboard. When it only fails in RDI, it is that SOFTWARE without a doubt....
When in doubt, re-start.... Still does not work, then re-create work-space.
Isn't it great when your keys do not work in a single software package???
I have recreate my work space about 1-1/2 months ago, and it has not happen again yet...
I would NEVER expect keyboard keys, like "delete" to stop working UNEXPECTLY in an IDE. You are NOT ALONE on this!
