    Hey guys,

    I'm on Snow Leopard, on a MBA.  I have Double Command installed and the only setting I have activated is "Right Option acts as Forward Delete." 

    My question is, in the past, with the same setting (but on a MBP), I used to be able to press and hold the little "enter" key, and it would continue to perform the forward delete action until I released it.  Now, however, it only deletes one character.  Does anyone have an idea of how to revert it back to the way I used to have it?  If not, is there any other program I can try to get this "forward delete" remapped onto a key?

    Thanks guys.

    My best guess is that the keyboard in the MBA behaves differently to the MBP. This happens sometimes with different hardware. If that's the case, DoubleCommand would need to be updated to handle this specific keyboard type, and fake the key repeats for this particular key when this particular option is selected. That's not likely to happen anytime soon.
