Caret move to first/last visible line bug?
Submitted by jhaefner on Wednesday, 17 June, 2015 - 05:26
Hi,
I use ubuntu 14.04 lts, jEdit version 5.1
$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_79"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.5) (7u79-2.5.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.2)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

I have strange behavior of caret moves near the top and bottom of visible lines. Specifically, "go to first visible line" goes to the fourth from the top, and "go to last visible line" goes to the 4th from bottom. Further, "go to next line down", when within the top 4 visible lines jumps to the 4th line. It works correctly when the caret is positioned w/in the middleof the text.

Any one else see this?

Hi,

it's not strange but a feature Smiling that You have enabled:

"Global Options -> Text Area -> Electric (auto scroll) borders".

Thank you Robert. I wondered what an "electric border" was. Still don't know what it is, but I now know what effect it has. Naturally, I have turned it off. -Jim
