Ctrl-H in text field creates garbage.

Dear support:

Typing Ctrl-H in the text field (in Add tasks), "%(hl) %" was inserted.

Is this intended?

Hello Masashi,

This is an old text formatting syntax which we no longer support. If you select a word of sentence when editing a task and use Ctrl+H, it will wrap it between these tags and when you save it, the text will be highlighted, but again - this syntax is no longer supported and may be removed in the future.


Best regards,
David

If possible, Ctrl-H do "delete previous character (or selection if existed)" as ordinary text fields.

Masashi,

Please clarify - would you prefer this shortcut to delete the last character or is this what's happening in your browser? Please note that you can use Backspace to delete previous character or selection instead.


Best regards,
David

I prefer Ctrl-H act as Backspace.
