#383 reflowing paragraphs might vertically shift the text

General (289)

Sometimes I reflow a bigger paragraph and the text shifts within the window. For example, my screen shows the lines 279-304, then I reflow a paragraph within that area and once it's done, the text has shifted and my screen shows the lines 280-305. Even if it's just one line, it can sometimes be confusing when you're trying to find your directions in the text.
Let me know if you have problems reproducing and I can try to post an example. But it happens pretty often to me.

Geany version 0.18
OS is Ubuntu 9.10

    Do you mean that if there's a trailing line end selected, this disappears after a reflow?

    I think I understand the problem now: Geany always moves the cursor to the last line of the reflowed paragraph and that can shift the text within the window. I never had this problem with Emacs and the reason here is that Emacs keeps the cursor at its old position even after reflowing.

    The text being reflowed is deleted then replaced with extra line breaks. The deletion can cause the screen to jump to keep the caret on screen or to minimise blank lines if at the end of the file.
