Syntax [Back] key Issue

Post by IvanMunro » Sun Jan 16, 2011 8:47 pm

I don't know if anybody's noticed before, but when you you use the [back] key when selecting channels it can create a fault in your selection / syntax line.
if you want to select channels 10 & 15 & 20 and you type the following:

[1][1][+][1][+] ("oops, mistake") [Back][5][+][2][0][enter]

the syntax line will actually say: 10+15+20*
but the selection in the fixture grid will show 1&5&10&20 .

yes I know ideally we don't make mistakes and use the [Back] key, but hey it sucks not being perfect.
I've tried it on the Light Palette VL and the OLE both running 10.8.2.

Any idea's anyone?
