GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 754428
Select All within a shape doesn't work
Last modified: 2019-03-20 12:07:38 UTC
I like to CTRL+A within an object to select all of the text within in. Especially, when performing updates that wipe the whole thing out.
It requires manually deleting/backspacing each character in the object.

Using Ctrl+A in text editing mode selects all the text in the shape. You can then use backspace to delete it, or start typing to replace it.

Here is a video demo of the patch - selecting all text with "Ctrl+A" then deleting it with backspace.

Can this be reviewed/landed/released? This is a very annoying on windows where ctrl+a prints a literal meta character.
I would also expect the standard windows text movement commands to work, but that's certainly out of scope of this ticket. Ctrl+arrow keys moves word wise, Shift+arrow keys selects text character wise, and ctrl+shift+arrow keys selects text word wise.
