I installed RDi back in December, 2016. And I had created a new workspace on Feb-23, 2107.
I thought that had fixed the random "del" key not working.

I have been using the RDI the longest at my work place FULL-TIME for over 11-years. Some co-workers act like I "Wrote RDI". And I should know how to solve every single little annoyance. <LOL>

So, I say restart it, and see you still have the issue.

If you don't like how it works, duplicate the issue. And then we can report it to IBM to be fixed.

Just like our users report issues on our software. Once duplicated, we then are usually able to fix the errors.

The problem is of course, these issues that hard to re-produce. It is not worth getting one's pants in wad. Just restart and continue. 10-seconds is all it takes...

After all it runs on Windows, which is not reliable like the IBM Power system running the OS "IBM I". Instead it runs the os called "Win-Doze". They are now writing program to automatically reboot the "PC" servers, because they are unreliable...

They would have my head on a platter, if the "IBM i" was that unreliable! <LOL>

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).
