Having troubles using Backspace and Del key when I'm on word online

Copper Contributor

I saw a thread on the subject:

https://answers.microsoft.com/he-il/msoffice/forum/all/%D7%AA%D7%A7%D7%9C%D7%94-%D7%91-backspace-%D7... -262a-4516-800b-aa9ab03aa487

But it is locked and basically no solution was received.

The situation is similar here, we are using WORD ONLINE for the option to work together so "track changes" on. we are using right to left language (Hebrew) and then when clicking on backspace or Del key we experiencing the opposite way for "deleting".

If you turn down "tracking changes" it works properly, but then, there is no meaning for that kind of work.

If "tracking changes" is on but you switched to "left to right" it works (but it is not suits for a language that is RTL)

I have opened a thread here:


then contact for help with  Microsoft 365 support and after they have checked that issue they suggested consulting here.
