1. AutoCAD 2011, new user & new install. I’m going throught the tutorials and have lost ability to repeat past ability to do tasks. One being to highlight an object and then delete using the Delete key. Second example being lost is to left click a drawn line and then to hit delete. Is this a setup problem?

Solved! by wengle. See the answer in context.
Why use delete key? Bad habit. Press E (erase), right click and then pick object and right click.
This also pertains to second item.
yes, that is good. although, there might be times that I would want to be able to hightlight an object and delete that portion of it. I thought it might be in the settings and something might be amiss.... thanks. I like this "e" and delete
Using the delete key is not a bad habit at all. I'm betting the value for PICKFIRST is set to 0. Type PICKFIRST and set the value to 1 and try again.
