Whenever I have to deal with Oracle 10g projects at work, Oracle SQL Developer always comes in handy.
However yesterday, the backspace and delete button inside the SQL query editor, all of a sudden, stopped working!
I tried restarting the Oracle SQL Developer, even restarting the computer, but the problem persisted.
I didn’t want to uninstall/re-install the application, so I went on to search the Oracle official forums.
Seems like other people had the exact same problem, and the solution was quite simple!
To resolve the problem you have to go to:
Tools -> Preferences -> Accelerators -> Load Preset -> Default -> OK
