annoying selection bug near end of documents

annoying selection bug near end of documents

Postby bmcmahen on Tue Sep 04, 2012 7:58 pm

Whenever I try to place the cursor near the bottom of a sublime-text document, it selects all of the text below the placement of the cursor. If I click again, sometimes it deselects the text and correctly places the cursor -- but if I click in a slightly different location, it reselects all the text from below that point. This only happens near the bottom of the page. Am I the only one experiencing this bug? It's incredibly annoying, and probably the only thing keeping me away from purchasing a license.

I'm running Sublime Text 2, build 2217, on Mac OS X Mountain Lion (although this bug has manifested itself on Lion and older version of Sublime Text).

I can confirm this annoying behavior under linux as well.

Yeah, it's happened to me too. I've never been able to figure out how to repro it, though.

Yes I have this bug too, it is very annoying. Can't reproduce it but seems to happen when many documents are open

Confirmed, on the latest Mountain Lion. It also kept me from buying it for a while. Though my solution is just to quit and restart since the buffer is saved. I have since purchased sublime but this is 1 or my 2 annoyances (the other is indenting with php and html mixed).

I've also been experiencing this bug in the latest Sublime Text 2 on Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

It's quite annoying and makes it very difficult to use, hopefully this is fixed soon!

If you don't already have

Code: Select all
"scroll_past_end": true


in your User Preferences (not Default Preferences!), add it and try again. There is a comment in the default prefs that says this value gets overridden and you have to put it in user prefs for it to stick. I vaguely remember the same problem you are all describing, but I don't have it any more and this setting might be why.

Code: Select all
while self.living? do
    mistake = Mistake.new
    self.learn_from!(mistake) unless mistake.fatal?
end
