Issue Report: in-game chat TF2 backspace and text selection not working
I found problems with in-game chat window - backspace not working. Text selection and copy-paste also not working. But I'm able to type some text without correcting possibility. I think it's useful thing and working in Windows-version.

I noticed that sometimes I can use backspace in chat (Y button), use cut, but not paste, and after some experiments in Steam-community chat - I see I can paste from commity chat to Y, but cut is not working.

Can't explain this more clearly but I'm sure text edition functions in TF2 Y-buttin chat working not so stable...

I believe they fixed this, would you test again and confirm?

Which version of the client are you using? (the version is listed by clicking Help | About Steam).

My Steam version - Nov 20 2012 / 15:32:05, Steam API v012, 1353457964. I played TF2 today and I see nothing fixed. Text editing not stable, copy-paste in-game and from clipboard. Russian language input also not working (although it worked many years ago in TF2/windows).

I can produce more detailed and deep report if necessary.

This is not something I've seen at all with TF2. Can you provide more details about your distro, languages, window manager, etc. And are you running Steam in English or Russian? Thanks.

I just found a problem - I entered Y or U chat in TF2 and... was unable to exit this mode - I could not type text and can't cancel this mode. So, can't play - this is a very rare bug.

Details: I can't do editing of text, I can cut text but can't paste. Backspace sometimes not working. I can type only in english, russian input not working.

Currently I running Steam and TF2 with fully russian locale. But even with LANG=C same problems with in-game chat.

Developers, please, install Ubuntu with any other language (for example РУССКИЙ - russian) and test your game in non-english system.

Vavle planning to release Steam accessible to everyone, but there are still tons of bugs! =((((
