Ctrl+Backspace in chat Window doesn't work in RC2

In Spark 2.6 RC1 and earlier (I’ve tested on Windows XP SP3 & Wiindows 7) you could use the Ctrl+Backspace key combo in the chat window to delete a word at a time. I didn’t realize how much I use this feature until I downloaded RC2 and it didn’t work. Was this feature removed on purpose or was it somehow inadvertently disabled? I couldn’t find any mention of it in the change log. Could get it back for the 2.6 final release?

works for me…2.6 RC2 Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I haven’t ever used it before, but i can confirm that this doesn’t work in the latest SVN version on XP SP3.

Works now

Awesome! Just downloaded and tested myself. Thanks guys!

I have encountered a bug in the implementation found in the final 2.6.0 release. The current implementation will always remove the last word in the text field.


  1. Open a new chat window.

  2. Type a multi word sentance, something like “This is a test”

  3. Move the cursor to somewhere in the middle of the sentence, say after the word “is”.

  4. Press Ctrl+Backspace

Expected result:
The word “is” is deleted

Actual result:

The last word “test” is deleted.

Looks good. Thanks again!
