Multi-Cell selection in IE

It is a known issue that IE does not properly allow for selecting content in multiple cells in a table to delete their content. The purpose of this ticket is to discuss whether CKEditor can do anything to facilitate the use case where a user selects text from multiple cells (using mouse or keyboard) and hits the delete or backspace key. The desired behaviour is that the selected content is removed from the cells. Firefox and Webkit handle this case natively.

Is it possible for CKEditor to detect the delete keystroke and perform the desired removal for IE? I realize this is working around the lack of functionality provided by IE, but it has come up as a customer request.

Not sure that would be a highly desired use case.

Another use case of multi-cell selection is the ability to easily merge a group of cells into one. Unlike in IE, in Firefox it's very easy with "Cell -> Merge Cells".

Looking at how it is implemented now in latest CKEditor 3.6.2 I doubt it will ever get implemented - deleting text with delete or backspace key from multiple cells selected.
Because of this I will close this ticket as won't fix.

As for multi selection and IE - this issue was raised #8830
