hi. long time ago, when i used to select something, and then click the erase button (right on top of the enter one), the selected bit would erase, but after sometime, i think i changed some configuration or it happened by itself; now when i select something, and i click the erase button, the text doesn erase, and to erase it, i have to click the 'Del' Button when selected a whole bit of text. i wanted to know whats the problem!

Thanks in advance

I can't see the problem. That's the correct behaviour for the Delete or 'Del' key, it deletes highlighted text. Furthermore, I don't know what type or make of keyboard you have, but I've never seen an 'Erase' key on a PC keyboard, at least not on a UK model.

yeah but i live in spain and the keyboard is different. i do know that the 'del' key does delete but the one right on top of the Enter one also does and for some problem its stopped erasing highlighted text but does delete the letters if i do it one by one.

the erase key is quite possibly the backspace key?...if you put the cursor (the blinking i-beam looking thing) at the end of a bunch of text (don't highlight a group of letters...just put it at the end) and press the "erase key" does the last letter of the line disapear?
