Description Martin Sandsmark 2013-11-21 21:41:10 UTC
I can't input special keys like delete, [ or } in a katepart with vim mode enabled.

It seems to be a recent regression.

Reproducible: Always

Hi Martin, thanks for report! I can confirm the problem with Del key in insert mode on KDE/4.12 branch.

After bisection this looks like the commit that changed the behaviour: http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kate.git&a=commit&h=1dd5ed8

Current devel branch doesn't show the problem behaviour. Is it possible for you to confirm that on devel (master) version everything works for you?
