Description Alan McGovern 2011-08-05 03:14:31 UTC
If you enter the 'New Lines' category you cannot use spacebar to select 'Place else on new line' or any other items.

Also, it'd be nice if space bar cycled through the options in any combobox type entries like 'Place array initializers on new line'.

Ah, I figured out what was actually happening. If i click on the area where the text is i 'select' the textbox. If i now press the spacebar, the textbox is the item which receives the keypress and therefore i can't toggle the checkbox.

If i click on or beside the actual checkbox, this control receives focus and so when i press the spacebar, it toggles as I'd expect. It'd be nice if spacebar toggled the checkbox regardless of where in the line I clicked with my mouse.
