I'd like an option which, after cursoring up or down, would automatically return the cursor left or right to the initial character position of the previous edit. For example:
- cursor right to character position 20
- type 10 characters, stopping on position 30
- cursor down
- cursor automatically returns to position 20
This could work for typing, pasting, backspacing, and selecting. TextPad addicted me to it, but I can't find such an editor that works on the Mac. I found something on the jedit-users that said jEdit used to do this for pasting only in 2002, but it doesn't now.
