sooo easy to delete random objects

Post by rinzwind » Wed Oct 07, 2015 12:38 pm

Its way to common to delete an object by mistake... at least on Mac OS. Backspace while typing in some palette (contents property, message box, ...) and using backspace is dangerous... It deletes selected objects in the project browser without warning. Happened multiple times already. I even once had deleted the whole code of a card while I don't know how I managed to do that. And undo won't work in these cases too...

Do you mean delete an object, or delete important information about an object? There have been discussions about the property inspector having focus while the user types (or thinks he is typing) somewhere else, and, say, the name of the object is changed.

That sort of thing?
