line editing is now broken in the new command line interface :-(

Are you already aware of this or do I need to log a ticket ?

for example type Heello and then go back and try getting rid of the extra E using the cursor keys and backspace - it doesn't work and just makes a has of it leaving a blank space or does not update at all.

    Hi @nathan - Thank you for alerting us to this issue. I'm checking now internally. I will open a ticket on your behalf.

    Thank you for notifying us. Seems like it's an issue. The Dev Team is looking into it as we speak!

    Thank you, they have confirmed it is an issue, but I do wish you would test these things better before you make them live.

    Support have confirmed that this issue should be fixed in next Sunday's (17th September 2023) release.

    Yay!

    It's better - but it's still not fixed - I will drop support an email with my findings.

    It does not allow you to insert – it only overtypes - which is not the normal behaviour you get in a command prompt/powershell

    Also it allows you to backspace beyond the start of the command line and make an awful mess – see this example below

    Note the word "echo" is in the middle of where the word windows should be for the path name in the prompt.

    Update: Support say that the latest fix should come out next week.

    sorry for the late update - the fix did come out, but it is still a little buggy ( I have updated support)

    the home button does not take you to the beginning of the command line, the end key does not take you to the end of the line, and pressing delete (NOT BACKSPACE)   does not forward delete as would be expected in a command prompt.

    Also pressing tab does not allow you to autocomplete filenames/folder names.
