Page seems to be full of space characters just recently
Up until recently at the end of a line of code on a php file, if I went to the next line by pressing the down arrow, it automatically returned to the last > on the next line, but now it just goes to the line below as if it was full of space characters and I can back space to the chevron or pull the line back for example:
<p>lots of text</p>A
Moving the cursor from point A to C it used to automatically go to point B, now it stays at Point C and I have to physically move it to point B, has something changed ?
When I submitted it C moved beside B, my question was C is direct;y below A. Notepad++ used to move it to the chevron it doesn’t now ??
next line by pressing the down arrow, it automatically returned to the last > on the next line, but now it just goes to the line below as if it was full of space characters
My guess is that you (intentionally or accidentally) checkmarked the option Settings > Preferences > Editing > ☑ Enable Virtual Space, which allows you to place your cursor beyond the end of the line.
(In a fresh installation / fresh portable, that option defaults to not being checkmarked, so you or someone else with access to your Notepad++ has turned it on, if I am correct about the culprit)
