Backspace strangeness

Not sure if this is supported since I'm on Linux/Wine. I don't know if this also happens on Windows, because I guess someone would have mentioned it by now and I found nothing here.

I'm currently running HeidiSQL 10.2.0.5669. Whenever I'm in a grid (table data, table editing) and I press backspace, the active tab looses focus and the first tab called "Host [...]" becomes active. Del(ete) works as expected, but.. the number of times I press Backspace and end up in another tab.. well, it's quite annoying. ;-)

I'm unsure about when this started, but I do know this didn't use to happen in a previous version. Is it something that can be fixed?

In fact, I booted a Windows PC, updated to the latest version and it doesn't happen there.

+1.

Backspace has this unexpected behavior. Including when editing data.

wine-4.12.1 (Staging) Heidisql 10.2.0.5608

Maybe it's that "Go to" menu item which does that, although I don't guess you have set your backspace key as shortcut for it. But maybe it helps to remove the default one (Ctrl + 1), in Tools > Preferences > Shortcuts?

to remove the default one (Ctrl + 1)

unfortunately it's useless...

There is same situation in Heidisql 9.4. I suppose the changes in wine are to blame.

Can confirm this happens when under the influence of wine. Editing fields is insanity.

Are you experiencing the same issue in some other Windows app under the same Wine version?

In other Windows applications under the same Wine version it works correctly

Also confirming the Backspace issue on Linux (Manjaro). Happens to me in all HeidiSQL 64-bit versions 9.5 onwards.

Must have something to do with Wine. As a temporary workaround I downgraded Wine to version 4.1-1 and now it works. In every version above that (tried 4.10, 4.11, 4.12, 4.13, and 4.15), hitting backspace while editing a field in the grid just focuses the "Host" tab.

I noticed that this is also happening in the Preferences window, when trying to assign the Backspace key to a shortcut: When the shortcut textbox is focused and I press Backspace, the tab focus is shifted to the "General" tab of the Preferences window. Looks like it must be for the same reason.
