Have Notepad ++ Move Cursor to END of a Sentence

  • Anonymous - 2013-12-02

    One thing I don't like about Notepad ++ is the cursor being placed at the beginning of a sentence when I paste something.

    At the least Notepad ++ should have an Option to [Move cursor to end of sentences].

    Not sure what you mean. If I have "abc" in the cut and paste buffer and paste it in an empty document, the cursor will be placed after the c, i.e. at the end of the sentence. I have never seen a program behave differently.

    I'm not aware of any settings which affect this. Are you running any plugins?

    I also wonder what the problem could be.

    In case this lead goes in the right direction: if you are not happy about where the caret is in selected text, you can place it at the other end by assigning a key to the SCI_SWAPMAINANCHORCARET Scintilla command in the Shortcut mapper and then using this shortcut.

    Please note that, if you are using the multiple selection feature, this will only affect the main selection, as the command name suggests.

    HTH. If it doesn't, then we need the precise use case to sort it out.
