I think the team must be pretty busy with some other issues. I’m definitely looking forward to a fix for this. Probably my second most wanted bug fix only after the inability to prevent auto restarts without watch.json boilerplate and other hacks (which isn’t really a bug - more of a feature request).
Hi @Gareth@cori, I know you said you’d update this when it is fixed, but it’s been quite a while now - any chance this one could be bumped up the priority list a bit? Lots of great improvement to the editor lately, but it seems like this bug has been neglected relative to the amount of friction it causes. Might just be me though!
I’m sorry this has not been fixed yet. Honestly, it may be a while until our team gets around to this.
In the meantime, your post about this issue will remain here; as it is valid feedback and a good explanation of the problem. Thank you for taking the time to document this issue, and we appreciate your patience!
@tasha I understand this may take a while, but I’m just purely curious as to why? No passive-aggressive stuff here, just pure curiosity! Is it just an extremely hard bug to find? Or is it just not a priority? The latter seems unlikely because of the recent changes like the env editor being fairly trivial in comparison to a problem like this.
I know it’s not something fundamental to CodeMirror, because I use it on some of my projects with not problems. So I’m guessing it is something that your team has tried to look at but just can’t work it out?
I’ve introduced a couple of people to Glitch and they have found this annoying too, so it just seems unusual that this problem has been around for years without getting fixed.
