When i type on the screen the caret is about 3 or 4
places from where the characters are being put on the
screen. I've got most of the plugins installed and
i'm using jdk1.3. This happens when the caret is set
to block caret and blinking caret. Great text editor
but this is making it pretty useless for me.......

Any more details you need just ask.

    Could you supplement with your OS, jEdit version and the
    font you are using in the text area (from
    Utilities>GlobalOptions>Text Area). Also any error
    messages in Activity Log on startup.

    Do you have the AntiAlias plugin installed?
    If yes, try switching it off, or uninstall it.

    I saw similar behavior starting in jEdit 3.0.x, on Red Hat
    Linux 6.2 with IBM's JDK; In italic text (comments, et
    cetera), actual cursor position and carat display would
    often be separated by three or four characters.

    This occurred before the release of the AntiAlias plugin,
    so I doubt it's related. Being rather pragmatic, I solved
    this problem by removing italics from all styles. ;-)

    I also used to see this with certain VM's prior to the
    AntiAlias plugin. It hasn't really been a problem of late.
    However, this problem is exacerbated by the AA plugin if
    the option to use fractional font metrics is selected. I
    would try not using that option, or removing the plugin as
    a first pass at fixing the problem.

    fixed in 3.2pre5. To try out a pre-pre-release of pre5,
    download 3.2pre4 and replace the jedit.jar file with one
    downloaded from the following location:
