    Idea: On my old nokia if you held the shift key and hit backspace then it functioned as a delete key, like on a computer, erasing the letter to the right of the cursor.

    Since the Shift + Backspace function is already taken in webOS to delete a full word at a time (great feature), I was wondering if it would be possible to to use the Option + Backspace to create the delete capabilities.

    I have found myself missing the function quite a bit and it would make editing a little faster.

    Hope this made sense and someone a lot smarter than I can make it happen.

    And if you do please PM me =)

    Thanks!!

    Personally I'd like it to be the meta-tap + backspace.

    But maybe you should actually make this suggestion to Palm if you haven't already. I would think this would be a pretty small change to make from there end and maybe they'll actually do it if you try. Long shot i guess but better to try than not to.

    YES! I requested from Palm about a year ago for this but didn't hear back. This would save a ton of time.

    I have not pitched the idea to HP. I figured it would happen much quicker here in the form of a patch than a full fledged change to webOS. I hope there is a little more interest than just 4 people or it might never happen.

    This has been requested several times. Just search on posts I've made and you'll see. Sadly, it must be more difficult than we think since it's never happened, nor do any developers really respond to the request.

    looks to me that this will need to be fixed on palm's end.
    that how I see it.
