I guess I hadn't noticed the change or just attributed it to my"senior mentality" and backspaced to correct it. So going back to 2.172 behavior is fine by me.

As far as clearing the spell search string, I would suggest Ctrl-Backspace. Presently, Ctrl-Backspace is used to once unlog a directory (in the DW) and three times to: clear an entire input line, script edit line or history search line. In fact, Ctrl-Backspace I would propose making Ctrl-Backspace a universal command to clear whatever input or other interactive string is current. Even the unlog directory behavior is a clear command in the "Clear entire" directory sense.

Namaste', Art
