Software Version and build number: v2.1.0 (1618)
Number of displays: 2 external @ 1280x
Connected USB Devices: Keyboard
Networked Devices: DP2000 (x-over cable)
Detailed description of the problem including instructions to reproduce (if possible) and exact syntax used:

(This is probably well known, but I couldn't find a post referring to it.)

There seems to be some major lag when using the backspace key in editor cells. This is especially noticeable when backspacing through timecode entries. Quite often, I find that the console does not backspace as many times as I tap, unless I wait for each backspace to occur onscreen.

List any errors reported by the software:

None


Cheers,

Phil

    Phil,

    Jon beat me to it. Try setting your key repeat delay preference to 0. If you're still seeing a difference between backspace and other numeric keys, I'd be very interested in hearing more about it.

    Thanks.

    So, in theory I can set this to a very low value (~25 ?) and this should alleviate some of the problems, while still allowing me to use double key presses if I've got quick fingers.

    Have I got that right?

    Yep. Setting it to 0 would allow you to definitively determine that it is the cause of your problems. Then it's just a question of trying to figure out the lowest setting you can get away with and still have your legitimate double-presses be recognized properly.

    I find anything lower than 50 just doesn't do it well enough.
