Bad news – ctrl-shift-L (AKA Key Assist) does not reflect the shortcuts in the LPEX editor. In LPEX, line delete is ctrl-backspace. The reason is due to the history of the LPEX editor, which goes back to the early ‘90s on OS/2 and AIX. Key Assist shows the Eclipse conventions, not the LPEX key mappings.

This is one reference for the LPEX shortcut keys:

Presumably you could remap the LPEX shortcuts to their Eclipse shortcuts. That’s probably not a small job. I don’t remember if changing the Editor profile under the LPEX Editor preference changes any of the key mappings, but it might be worth trying first.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Shortcut keys not working as expected - example Ctrl+Dduplicates the line but I want it to delete the line


I am using Rdi Version:

If I press Ctrl + Shift + L - the preference page opens.

If I am in a RPGLE member and I press Ctrl+D the line I am on is
duplicated but he shortcuts on the preference page suggests this should
delete the line.

It appears the majority of shortcut keys do something different to what is
in the preference page.

I have tried setting the Lpex editor shortcut keys back to defaults but no

Any suggestion appreciated.
