Key presses do not register when backspace or delete is down

When typing in any TextBox both in-game and in Studio, you can’t type a key while backspace/delete is down. This is frustrating, as I cannot correct typos quickly. Typing should cancel deletion.

I’m not sure when the bug started to occur, but my best guess is around one to three weeks ago.

Repro Steps:

  1. Focus on a TextBox and type some gibberish.
  2. Hold backspace or delete.
  3. While the text is being deleted, attempt to type. Deletion will stop and you cannot type until you release the deletion key. The proper behavior should be to cancel deletion upon typing a key.

It’s hard to understand how often backspace is still held down when typing until you try fixing a typo in the chat.

I’m able to reproduce the issue, I’ll take a look at this when I have time.
