I don't know if this is a new configuration option that I've missed or simply a bug, but I'm having real trouble keeping the editor cursor where it should be.
If the cursor is ever on a new line in an indented position, and then I alt-tab away from intellij, when I come back the cursor is no longer in the indented position, but instead it's at the true beginning of the line all the way to left. It's incredibly annoying. I leave the cursor in one place, but when I come back, it's in another. This only happens on a new empty line.
Is there any way to make this behave the way it used to? The way it seems like it intuitively should?
Ok, after writing the above I went and had one last look. I had turned off the setting to "allow placement of caret after end of line" in the settings. When I turn this back on, the cursor stays in position after returning from an alt-tab. However, in Intellij 9 the cursor stayed where it was suppose to regardless of whether this setting is on or off (I loaded up 9 just to to test it and be sure).
So, I guess this is a bug. Is there a way to officially report this?
