When I mess up typing an uppercase letter, I usually hold Shift while pressing the Backspace. Instead of backspacing, it types
^? (to my frustration).
Google tells me that
^? is the "delete" character, but it has no effect from what I can see (I may be wrong).
I have seen stuff online for setting
'backspace' but none for
shift-'backspace', so I'm lost unfortunately. I have also tried doing
:inoremap <S-BS> <BS>, but that doesn't seem to be working either.
Please let me know
- how to solve this; or,
- why not to change this if it turns out to be something important; or,
- why it can't be done for some reason.
