I am currently running version 7.00.1 and the issue is still there. just incase my initial description was not clear enough, these are the steps that I am using to reproduce the issue:
Open a new file
Type some text (ie- “qwerty”)
Click on line 1 column 80 and type “u”
The old behaviour that I am accustomed to is that “u” is on line 1 column 7. the Behaviour that I am seeing is that “u” is at column 80 and there are 73 spaces in between “y” and “u”.
