Limited cursor moving?

Hi,

It seems that AppCode's editor has only free cursor mode? Anyone know how to limit cursor moving onto the area entered characters?
If it's impossible, I hope the limited cursor moving mode will be added.

Cheers!

Go to Preferences, select the Editor entry under IDE Settings, and in the section Virtual Space on the right, deselect the option 'Allow placement of caret after end of line'.

I've previously requested (OC-616) that this be off by default for AppCode, since it is not standard behaviour for Mac text editors, but the issue was closed as Won't Fix.
Perhaps if more people speak up on the subject, the developers will reconsider that point.

Thanks, Maarten!
I agree that this behaiviour is not standard for Mac.

It's not standard behavior for any platform. JetBrains is of the opinion that when writing code it's more useful to be able to place the cursor anywhere instead of having it adhere to the end of the line. I could argue either side but will say that I don't notice the behavior in common use.

Thanks for providing the fix for this!

Thanks for submitting the fix for this! I created an account on these forums just to ask the question of how to change that setting. The default behavior is frustrating, and I agree it would be best if changed.
