Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIVOT-685) SHIFT+DOWN keystroke within TextArea do not expand the selection past an empty line
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 13:55:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-685?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13042176#comment-13042176

Greg Brown commented on PIVOT-685:
----------------------------------

> The problem here is that the way we have defined selection indexes, it is impossible

That doesn't sound right. If I have a text area that contains "\n\n", positioning the caret
at 0 should insert before the first newline and positioning it at 1 should insert before the
second newline.

> SHIFT+UP & SHIFT+DOWN keystrokes can be used to expand the selection to the previous
or next line respectively.
> However SHIFT+DOWN fails to extend the selection past an empty line.
> SHIFT+UP appears to work as expected
> Given the following text, and the caret positioned at the start of the TextArea, the
first press of SHIFT+DOWN will select 'abc', the second will also select 'def', but third
and subsequent presses will have no effect due to an empty 3rd line.
> 'abc <newline>
> def <newline>
> <empty line>
> ghi'
> Workaround by using the mouse, or SHIFT+LEFT & SHIFT+RIGHT
