Title: Add option to make <HOME> key go to beginning of line.
Post by: Miki on July 14, 2014, 04:57:28 pm
Hi All,
Currently, pressing the <HOME> key in the source code edit window causes the cursor to stop at the first whitespace character it encounters.
This means that the <HOME> key must be pressed twice to set the caret to the beginning of the line.

Would it be possible to add the ability to turn this on or off? (i.e. a "<Home> stops at first whitespace" checkbox in options)

Thanks for reading this.

:Miki.

This is generally the way many code editors are acting on the home/pos1 key.

Source code is indented to make it more readable, so the first character in a line is seldom at column 1.

Have you tried if you get the same behavior with auto indent set to none?

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for your reply. I'm currently using Code:Blocks for C++ and it has the ability to turn that functionality off (Which I promptly do.)
There are other IDEs that provide the same option.

I have turned Auto-Indent off to no avail.

:Miki.

I want to release version 8.0, not add new features, so maybe in a future version. I will think about it...
