I did some brief searches of the archive and couldn't find it... I'm running plan9port on macOS. I noticed that in acme, (and also sam) if I select part of a string and p delete, the selection gets deleted and also one additional character in front of the selection. For example, if I type "/path/to/file" and double-click file, file gets highlighted, and if I press delete, "/file" gets deleted leaving me with "path/to". This seems counter-intuitive as I expected only what I had highlighted to be deleted. There is a GitHub issue (#424) https://github.com/9fans/plan9port/issues/424 filed for this as well. Just curious, is this by design, or is this a bug? I'm inclined to think it's by design as it occurs within sam as well. As always, thanks!! -Ben ------------------------------------------ 9fans: 9fans Permalink: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/Tf6b94eeff34dd2d7-M674a970ef824d9c5094cb3d7 Delivery options: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/subscription
