Wrong behavior of 'cursor up' key
« on: September 01, 2014, 11:51:13 AM »
The 'cursor up' key behaves incorrectly. Steps to reproduce:

1. Make sure that the Insert mode is active.

2. Create a text file with the following content:

abc
def

3. Place the cursor on the "d".

4. Press "x". As a result, you'll get:

abc
xdef

5. Press the 'cursor up' key.

Expected behavior: The cursor will be on "b".
Actual behavior: The cursor will be on "a".

Hi Andreas,

this is not a bug, but nice feature ;) that was copied from TextPad, I think.
Found for you description of the feature in Sublime forum.

Will do FAQ article for this.

BR, Alex.

Hi Alex,

okay, thanks for the explanation.

Maybe this feature is not so bad and I can get used it. :-\ Indeed I think it can be quite useful in some situations.

Best regards,
Andreas
