Ctrl+A in a textbox should select all text instead of all records
Currently, when I'm in a form's textbox and I instinctively hit Ctrl+A to select all text (just like any other Windows application), nothing happens. Or so you may think, in fact everything happens! All records get selected, and if you dare hit the wrong button while you think you have selected all text of the textbox, woe is unto you.
Should Access really be different from all other programs out there? Why should a user think that when in a textbox and hitting ctrl+A it won't select the text?
Of course, there are workarounds (like a VBA function that hijacks the shortcut), but simply selecting all text should be the default.
Thanks for suggesting and supporting.
We agree that this behavior is somewhat misleading, but believe that fixing it may cause existing apps and solutions that depend on this behavior unexpected issues.
