Reproducible in Webkit from CKEditor 3.0


  • There doesn't need to be any text in first row. Just put cursor in first row in right-most cell and press delete.
  • Similar to already closed #1722

What is the plan to resolve this ticket?

Just a guess but perhaps #8471 has the same cause for this behavior.

What is the plan to resolve this ticket?

As discussed with senior developers - This one will be aimed for v4 only, it's just complex for this release.

Opened t/8916: Backspace/Del keystrokes are now handled at the boundary of table cells, to move cursor.

I pushed rebased branch + small coding style fix.

Del/backspace behaviour is fixed on Webkits.

In the code I see that this fix is generic and I wonder if it shouldn't affect also IEs? I also think that this change may deserve a new TC.

Making the change for all browsers makes sense, as it guarantees a unified behaviour among them, no matter their default behaviour. Considering that we're have that code for a single browser anyway, it is safe to just enlarge it to others.

I'm still not a big fan of making DEL a movement key. I prefer the IE behaviour for this TC, where nothing happens in this case.

Anyway, the proposed behaviour is "acceptable". Let's see if people will complain about it.

There's a problem with having test coverage on keystroke handlers in v4, see #9300.
