If I type [1 2 3] in the REPL window and then decide that I want it to be (shuffle [1 2 3]) then if I click at the beginning and type ( then it adds ) right after it automatically, which is the sort of thing I've come to expect both in Calva and in other environments... but unlike when this happens in other contexts there appears to be no way to delete the ) no matter what I do.

I know that I'm an outlier in not personally liking any automatic typing of closing brackets ever, and also in not wanting to learn/use Paredit commands (I prefer ordinary typing), and I don't expect the behavior of Calva to change in response to my preferences! But the middle ground adopted in Calva editor windows -- adding closing brackets but letting me delete them -- works well enough for me, and presumably also for others.

So my request is that the REPL window acts like the editor windows in this respect.

Thanks. It is a pity with the separate behaviours between the prompt and the editors. I'll see what I can do about it. Meanwhile, you might find that alt+backspace is your friend at times. It force-deletes stuff, bypassing paredit's demands for structure integrity.

Ahh, thanks -- alt+backspace is indeed now my friend. I hope I don't forget about it, and agree that consistent behaviors would be desirable in the long run (because, alas, I will probably forget 😊).
