Cursor doesn't move in block mode insert
« on: August 17, 2011, 02:55:35 PM »
When I copy something in block mode and then insert it, the cursor doesn't move to below the inserted data.  So I can't hit the Insert key to repeatedly insert the data vertically.

This used to work in the 32 bit version but it doesn't work in the 64 bit version (I just got a new 64 bit computer).  Is there a setting I can change to get it to work?

Thanks!

There is macro variable that sets that behavior:

def_paste_block_cursor_end

You probably had it set to 1 in a previous version and it didn't migrate.

The settings for block paste available are:
0 - (default) no movement
1 - cursor below pasted block (orig column)
2 - cursor on last line and last column of pasted block
3 - works like 1 except at end of file.  At end of file, cursor is last line of block, orig column (doesn't insert blank line).

That should really be in the options somewhere, I file a request to have that done.
