Then again, others probably have > vastly different use cases to mine. One can also blank a field by pressing <SPC> immediately after tabbing into it. So C-c <SPC> isn't strictly needed. (Though since you typically discover you want to blank a field only when you're actually in it, it can help shave a few seconds off your day that you'd otherwise use to move out of the field you want to blank and tab back in ... which is how I've done this until now, being unaware of C-c <SPC>). Yours, Christian
