Don't know why, but this shortcut is not working on my system?

    Hello Chris

    To enforce selection of the goal itself (to ensure that the hotkey shortcuts apply to the goal rather than one of its attributes), simply select a different goal, then return to the one to which you want to apply the shortcuts.

    There are more details about this in our reply to your previous discussion here.

    Thanks for your reply.

    First of all I noticed a possible translation error.
    The keyboard shortcut help says in German: "CTRL+ Entfernen" which would be the English "CTRL+Del"
    BUT the english help says: "CTRL + Backspace"

    Regardless of this difference ->

    I click on a different goal and click back to the goal I want to delete -> neither CTRL+Del nor CTRL+Backspace deletes the goal.

    If I hit CTRL+X the goal disappears -> so I don't think it is a focus problem.

    Hello Chris

    Thanks for the additional information – I have escalated this to the developers.

    We will also fix the German translation on the Hotkey Shortcuts list under Help.
