V.1.2.3 Cursor appears two characters further in the line


I upgraded from 1.0 to 1.2.3 recently and since then the cursor is always two columns ahead of the current character. The indicator at the bottom would show 1:1 (row 1, col 1) but the cursor would be on the third column.

Screenshots – notice the position of the cursor

This is the sequence of keys I pressed:
Screenshot 1: 123
screenshot 2: [left arrow] [left arrow] A
In screenshot 3, [right arrow] B

These are the only keys I pressed.

version: 1.2.3
OS: ubuntu 15.04

Upgraded through the .deb on atom.io not through package manager.


What font are you using?


I upgraded from 1.0 to 1.2.3

So you skip 1.1 ? Do you have custom theme seti syntax ? Is it possible for you to upgrade or re-install that package ?


Hi Jean,

I didn’t have the seti theme installed but a similar one called “greti”. Changing it fixed the layout. Thanks!
