How to get editor to NOT keep vertical column place and act like a standard text editor?

I'm trying to find the option to in RubyMine to have the editor act more like a standard text editor.  If I'm at the end of a line and I hit the down arrow, it should take me down to the exact same column if the next line is the same length or longer, or to the end of the line if it's shorter.. as it is now it just moves down and maintains that column location even though the line may not have that many characters..etc

I don't know what you call this behavior and I don't care for it..  I'm sure there is an option somewhere but darned if I can find it..

Thoughts?
