Title: Wrong behavior of 'cursor up' key
Post by: Andreas 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 (https://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2529).

Will do FAQ article (http://wiki.hippoedit.com/faq/smart-horizontal-cursor-position) 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
