0000125: When saving games, holding down backspace or delete does not delete more than one character, which it is possible to do in H3.
Also, I think H3 allows you to insert characters partway through a savegame's filename (that is, not just at the end). These are small improvements but very valued and important, as it means than you don't have to press a key say 5, 10, 15 or more times in a long filename to delete a number of characters. =)

I'm unable to reproduce this issue in 0.74.
In the Save Game screen, when I hold backspace key for a while, multiple characters from the save filename are removed.

Is anyone else also observing this issue?

Yes. I can confirm it. I have 0.74 and holding backspace in the Save Game screen does not delete more than 1 character.

And I also confirm that H3 allowed arrow keys to move the cursor while naming the Save Game (but I guess there was no doubt about this). On top of that, I'd like to suggest - if easy to implement - also the possibility to use the mouse click to place the cursor somewhere in that field.

UPDATE: I checked r1363 and the bug is not present anymore (i.e.: backspace deletes multiple characters if we keep it pressed).

I guess the report can remain though open until the cursor is implemented as well (or shall we split them?).
