For some reason textboxes in Simutrans always act in "real time", so the name changes literally as you type, with each keystroke.Take a station like "Appington Apache settlement". You want to rename the city, so you delete the name and... whoops! As you remove the letters, the name changes to App, then Ap, and the next deletion makes it just A and replaces Ap with A, where the trouble start. You get "A Aache settlement". Last keystroke makes it an empty string, so even both capital As are dropped and you get " ache settlement". Now you start typing a new name. Exactly what should the program do when the last name it remembers is nothing?Obviously it can be done - everything can - but not the obvious way :-(EDIT: of course just the first occurrence should be replaced, so at least some of the worries should not hold true... we'll see.
