    Had a look on here and no topics jumped out at me.

    The delete key on the pro smart keyboard does a backspace. Is there any key combination that turns this into a "delete to the right" key? On my mac, I'd use fn+backspace for this but there's no fn key here and it doesn't get listed in the shortcuts while holding the command key down.

    This is currently driving me round the bend as I'm sure I'm missing something so obvious.

    I haven't figured it out either, none of the modifier keys + backspace work. Baffling. Thankfully can be part of a software update...

    LOL... Yes. Right then backspase...

    I haven't heard of any either. But I have never been in the habit of deleting to the right. You can hold shift and use the arrow keys to highlight then press the delete key. So Shift+Right as many times to highlight the words (or even single letter) the press delete.

    Very unhappy to confirm that there currently is no key function for 'delete', just the backspace function of the 'delete' key.

    Don't have access to smart keyboard but have you tried cntrl +D to delete to right? I remember hearing this some time ago, try it and see!

    Here's a shortcut: Press the right arrow key, and then press delete :)

    See post #3.

    There is no delete function that I have discovered.
