That's IT's classic response to everything...just restart it...

The Delete issue has been a prior occurrence to me as well but since I have upgraded to 9.5.1 I have had zero occurrences of it. I don't know if it's because I started a new workspace or changed a preference that would prevent something like that from happening again. Kind of like my Windows issue on my home PC where it keeps turning on the proxy settings when a certain application starts up and I can't get my internet to work anymore until I undo it. I can't recall if there was something I did which in turn would fix your problem, but I know it might take some time to isolate the root cause given it happens at random times and infrequently I might add. You make one setting change, not experience the issue for some time, and believe it is therefore fixed, then resurfaces (and applying Murphy's Law, at the worst possible moment).

I go the dreaded DEL key not working. AGAIN!

Switch to NotePad++, Outlook, and visual code studio, and the del key works there!

I was changing a zoned(7) to zoned(9), and had insert on so it keyed in Zoned(97). Which I got errors of course! That is good! This seems to be happen when I was debugging. And I was debug one program, while working another program.

But, then the delete key stopped working.

A reboot fixed it however. I guess this is to be expected with "restart" software. Have a problem, just "Restart it!"...
