I'm wondering if this is just an issue with my computer or something. But it appears that the "rapid delete" function no longer works in Mountain Lion. I have everything up to date - but the issue is this:


When I hold down the delete button for a long time, it usually would start deleting faster and delete entire words or sometimes even entire sentences if you held the delete button down long enough.


However, now when I hold the delete button down, it delete each letter no matter how long you hold it down, and it takes a very long time to delete something unless you highlight it. It's kind of annoying issue.


Does anyone know if this is a setting somewhere I have to enable now? I tried looking but came up empty handed...


Thanks in advance!

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
