Backspace jumps one space back while deleting a value from Textbox



I am saving a number from text-box to collection. After clicking outside the text-box I am formatting that number to currency. But when i am deleting that number using 'backspace' button of keyboard, it is not deleting all the digits. Whenever there is a comma or dollar sign, 'backspace' is jumping one space to previous character.

How do I avoid this.

Hi @abd3127 ,


Can you please share more details about your issue? Like what is the formula that you use to save the number to a collection? How did you format that number to currency? Did you mean that you cannot delete all numbers from the text input control using "backspace"? You could try to explain your issue using some screenshots if possible. Do mask sensitive information before your upload.

I have the same problem. 

I have a text input which fetches data from a database and is also editable, allowing me to modify that data.

When I am trying to remove the data from within the text input using backspace (meaning I am dropping my cursor at the end of the line then press backspace repeatedly and fast) Powerapps skips a character/space, leaving me with one character left in the text input when I am supposedly finished deleting. I need to press delete one more time or press RIGHT ARROW and then Backspace again. 

This can sometimes create an inconvenience when certain users are used to deleting input data using backspaces instead of CTRL + A + DEL, hence errors which can end up costing money. 

Does anybody know what is this related to? Any workarounds?

If it's a framework related issue, anybody knows when and if it is going to be fixed?

Thanks in advance!
