So... I don't have the "Insert" key anymore. What now?

Post by pagb666 » Aug 3rd, 2012, 15:25

In excitement with the Jace Hall announcement, I fired Mapedit for the first time in like... 8 years. I loaded a old map of mine and started tinkering.

It was then when I was repeatedly hitting the insert key but no vertexes were added to the highlighted wall. Then I realised that my current keyboard (and my previous one too) do not have the "insert" key, but a big "delete" one.

Any workarounds?

You can remap the actual key mappings in DosBox if that's how you're running mapedit.

Otherwise you can't reconfigure how mapedit itself works.

No insert key? Maybe it has some kind of a workaround like some weird laptop keys have, try shift+del?

It worked flawlessly, Thanks!

It's not a laptop, many keyboards today have this:
