I’ve noticed that if I have a number of tab characters in a row, such as at the beginning of PHP code that is indented, clicking the mouse in that empty space does not always move the cursor to the nearest tab character.
If I click near the very beginning of the line, the cursor moves to the position of first tab over. If I click more to the right, almost up to that first tab character, the cursor moves to the very beginning of the line.
The place this becomes a little frustrating is when I’m trying to move the cursor to the very beginning of the line, to play around with some whole lines of code. I have click within three pixels of the beginning of the line to get the cursor there. It would be very convenient if I could instead click anywhere within a half-tab of the beginning of the line.
Is this a bug, a feature, or am I doing something wrong?
