Description Dominik Haumann 2012-03-09 19:43:00 UTC
Insert the following text into the editor:


1. select C++ highlighing
2. fold the code
3. select text from o|s to s|- (the fold is still folded)
4. type x

Expected result: oooox----------
Actual result: oooo------x----

The folded node somehow leads to broken code. This bug exists also in KDE 4.6. Maybe this is related to crashes, so the severity is set to major.

kate/part/tests/foldedselection_test.cpp contains a unit test for this.

Comment 3 Dominik Haumann 2012-03-10 09:12:15 UTC
The following part (and more) was added by commit http://websvn.kde.org/?revision=1064050&view=revision to fix bug #200858

  m_preserveX = true;
  KTextEditor::Cursor newPos = toRealCursor(toVirtualCursor(m_cursor));
  KateTextLayout newLine = cache()->textLayout(newPos);
  newPos = renderer()->xToCursor(newLine, m_preservedX, !m_view->wrapCursor());
  updateCursor(newPos, true);

Pascal, Milian: Do you still remember what went wrong without this code in bug #200858 ?
Comment 4 Christoph Cullmann 2012-03-10 11:26:04 UTC
In any case: moving the cursor is a bad idea here, as then it will have a wrong position for next editing actions ;)
The problem is that m_cursor might still be wrong I think.
And after my testing, it just looked ok. But perhaps there is a corner case when the cursor is hidden in the region.

bring back test for bug 295632

This test makes sure that,
- if you have selected text
- that spans a folded range,
- and the cursor is at the end of the text selection,
- and you type a char, e.g. 'x',
then the resulting text is correct, and changing region
visibility does not mess around with the text cursor.
