ALT + Left/Right produce special character


#1

When using ALT + Left/Right to navigate after jumping with CTRL+Click, a special character is inserted after releasing ALT-Button.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Post the following code (no need to compile)

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY test_package AS
PROCEDURE test_procedure AS BEGIN NULL; END test_procedure;
BEGIN
test_procedure();
END;

  1. Ctrl+Click the call of test_procedure (jumps to declaration).

  2. Use ALT+Left to navigate back
    When releasing the ALT-Key, the following character is inserted: :diamonds:

Using ALT+Right afterwards adds this one: :spades:

That’s what the code looks like afterwards:

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY test_package AS
:spades:PROCEDURE test_procedure AS BEGIN NULL; END test_procedure;
BEGIN
test_proc♦edure();
END;

Peter,

What is your locale set to? What about your keyboard?

Thanks,

Brad

I cannot reproduce. Is CTRL+Clicking first a required step? What if you use the toolbuttons to navigate forward and back instead of ALT+[Left|Right]? They are the blue circles with left and right arrows in them.
