Visual Studio 2015 Backspace key is not working when editing and mouse hover over is not working when debugging
When editing Cobol source code in Visual Studio 2015, the backspace key is not working, pressing the backspace key is supposed to delete the last character but it does not do anything.
When debugging, hover over the mouse to a variable is supposed to show up a tooltip window containing the current value of the variable but it does not do anything.
This is a Microsoft bug (VS2015 only).We are going to include the Microsoft recommended workaround statement in our "Known Problems" section of the docs and release notes.
