Backspace does not work when file starts with comment header

Backspace does not work when file starts with comment header

Postby riddlepl on Fri Mar 15, 2013 4:21 pm

Hi,
I found a bug in Sublime Text2. Shortly, create new file, write something in it. Then paste this at the beggining of file
Code: Select all
/**
*******************************************************************************       
* some text
* sdsada ome text2
* some tedsa sdad xt3
* some text4
*
* some text5
*
*******************************************************************************/


And now you are unable to delete characters in this file by pressing backspace. Only way is to select text and then press backspace.

If you can provide some workaround I will be grateful

It does not change anything. Problem still exists. Freshly installed sublime text has the same issue (for new linux user)

Are you sure you removed your data folder ? This look like a plugin problem.
Reinstalling ST is no enough.

Yes I'm sure. I moved .config/sublime-text-2 somewhere else. Even created new user and do a fresh installation.
I run FindKeyConflicts, but it looks fine. The problem disappears when I remove mentioned comment header (but I cant work this way, such header is mandatory for my job).

Work fine for me on Windows.
What's the syntax of your new file, PlainText ?

I've checked plain text and c++.
I'm working on Linux Mint, maybe it causes the problem. I'm going to switch to Fedora today.


Everything works on Fedora 18 O.o

Hello everybody, i have the same problem with backspace and also with del key with plain text, C file, SQL file, at least !

I tried to rename sublime folder as mentioned but without effect.

My installation is a fresh installation without plugins installed by myself.

I'm on Ubuntu 12.10.

I'm running a Linux desktop with Ubuntu 10.04, it have the same bug, a laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 with the same bug, tested on windows 7, no problem and MacOs no problem.
Sublime backs to normal when you removes the comment.
