End key positions behind text and inserts magic space

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

1641: When hitting the "End" key in the SQL editor, the cursor is positioned 1 character behind the last character, if there is another line. This behaviour is unwanted. Example, in a new editor. Type: select will be displayed and saved as: se lect Update: There is a related bug in the result window. Copying (and pasting the result in an external editor which shows whitespace such as Editplus) shows that an unwanted space is appended to every copied row.

Re: End key positions behind text and inserts magic space
Hi, Copy Selection as Text copies the data as fixed width columns with spaces padded at the end when needed. This is by design. Regards Roger

Re: End key positions behind text and inserts magic space
Hi Hans, sorry, I accidentally used the new function "Copy Selection as Text". This will add a space at the end (see screenshot), but I don't know if this is intended or not. I will of course use the old "Copy Selection" function, which is still there. Regards, Freewater

Copying (and pasting the result in an external editor which shows whitespace such as Editplus) shows that an unwanted space is appended to every copied row. Can you please clarify this one a bit? When you say "the result window", do you mean the textual representation of a result set below the editor in the SQL Commander area? If so, the text is padded to make all lines the same length. Are you saying you see additional line feed characters. Please post a screenshot if you think that can help. Best Regards, Hans
