This may not be an appropriate location for this query but I'm sure many on here can help me and I apologise if I should not post request like this here.


Basically i am getting to grips with Mac from Windows and i'm getting on ok mostly but one thing i cant seem to find a replacement process for is the back arrow function. (mass delete)


For example (i'll use excel to demonstrate my issue)


I have data in a spreadsheet and I want to delete all in cells A1 to B10 but i dont wish to delete the Columns or rows as I need them.


In windows I highlight the cells and click the backspace key and it delets all from all highlighted cells.

On the mac if i do that it only deltes the data in the cell im located at and i have to delete all cells individually.


Can anyone please advise how i get the functionality of the mass highlighted backspace delete using the mac?


Thanks G

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
