I’m testing this on mac but I’m not sure if it’s a mac only issue. Tested with the latest Font demo on El Capitan (seen similar behaviour on Sierra). The jumps are invoked with command left/right arrow
I originally intended to just report this issue that’s been around for a long time:
1.) When the last line of text has a line feed at the end (meaning there’s one more line after it with nothing on it) the jump to end of line will bump the caret down to the last line with nothing on it.
When I attempted to verify that the latest dev still had that issue, I discovered there are now more problems with it. (*Edited to show how the current font affects this behaviour)
2.) Jump to beginning of line and jump to end of line often bumps the caret up one line (maintains respective beginning/end, just wrong line).
Bump up behaviour based on font, e.g.:
Bodoni 72 Oldstyle: every line bumps up
Bodoni 72 Smallcaps: No lines bump up
Chalkboard: Only some lines bump up.
Note issue number 1 does not appear to be affected by font choice.
Same setup as for issue 1, but now the cursor is on the second last line of text and is at a cursor position further right then the last line of text has, a down arrow will jump the last line of text and land on the very last line (the one with no text).
This is the second last line of text. We press down arrow here.
This is the last line of text.
