OK, I'm an idiot, I admit it. I have ORACLE SQL Developer installed, and stupidly changed some of the menu items under Tools/ Preferences/ Code Editor. Now all of a sudden, my DELETE key does not delete, although BACKSPACE works fine. Also, the prehistoric Windows shortcut CTRL + INSERT suddenly doesn't copy any more, although it worked before in the tool, and works on everything else in Windows.

A smart person would have recorded exactly what changes they made- but I didn't.

Any idea which Preference should be changed, and what it should be changed back to???

HELP!!!! Smile
