Gutter selection bug


Relating back to my previous post on selection issuess (specifically point 4, the gutter bug), if you have a link that would normally cause the editor to horizontally scroll as you select the end of the line, the gutter bug has the following psychedelic effect:

So the first part of the gif (selecting line 5) shows the general gutter bug, but the next part (selecting line 6) shows what happens if that line would cause the editor to scroll if the cursor was at the end of it. The gif has actually too low a frame rate to truly show how crazy it goes (seriously, try it, and then try it with a hugely long line!) but suffice it to say it’s a fun little effect.


Thanks for reporting this bug! Could you open an issue for this on atom/atom


Done, #2051.
