B5: Too many cursors with shift-RMB drag
« on: September 25, 2014, 10:45:07 pm »
When you shift-RMB-drag over a block you get a cursor at the end of each non-blank line - except that you also get a cursor on the last line even if it is blank (and it doesn't matter if you drag up or drag down).
So, given text like:
LINE1
LINE2




LINE5


Shift-Drag-Select Line4 to line1 (or line1 to line4, same result).
You get cursors on line 1, line 2 and line 4, but not on 3.


Expected: Cursors on lines 1 and 2 -OR- cursors on lines 1,2,3 and 4.

This probably won't be changed. It looks easy to fix but it totally isn't. The work around for now is not to start or end your column selection on a blank text.
