Left arrow and right arrow keyboard keys

When I currently hit F2 the text in the cell (if there is text in the cell) is selected. However, when I hit the left or right arrow keyboard key, I want the cursor to move to the left or right once character at a time.

How can I get this to work?

Which version of grid do you use? and for which type of excell problem occurs?
In latest code ( and probably starting from dhtmlxGrid 1.3 ) the keyboard navigation in editable cell is fully functional. ( problem still may occur for some rare used excell types )

if problem occurs only in your code and not reconstructable in default samples - please provide any kind of sample where problem can be reconstructed ( you can contact us directly at support@dhtmlx.com )
