Why I can't delete of selected block of code?


I am working on MacPro, and I can delete character-by-character by pressing the 'delete' button, but if I select a block of code, and then press the 'delete' button, it doesn't delete.  As I constantly press the ''delete" button, it selects more characters backwards without deleting anything.


This is very annoying. How to delete block of code after a selection of the block?

First of all, make sure you are not using Vim (check Tools | Vim Emulator).

Then check your Keymap, maybe you have some conflicts for the delete button.

What an easy solution to this conundrum. I've been thinking around the corners of this problem for so long. It was now that I figured it out. Thanks!
