Backspace not working in SQL Developer?

If you have been getting frustrated lately, by the unintended behavior of the backspace key in SQLDeveloper worksheets, here’s how you can get that stupid key to work again 🙂

For versions before 2.2.x

1. Go to Tools > Preferences > Accelerators >

2. Click on Modify Loading Preset > Reset to Defaults

For versions 2.2.x and beyond

1. Go to Tools > Preferences > Shortcut Keys

2. Click on More Options > Load Keyboard Scheme > Reset to Default

Enjoy 🙂
