    Text selection followed by right cursor - changed behaviour in 1809


    We've got a preview build of 1809 running on a test machine, some macros are failing because of a change of behaviour in text editing. All our existing machines exhibit this behaviour -

    Text Selection (selection is indicated in red)

    Now press the right cursor key

    The cursor is now flashing on the character to the right of the selection - between the c and t

    Text Selec tion

    Now in our preview machines (we've got two of them) the cursor moves to the immediate right of the selection, between the e and c

    Text Sele ction

    Do you follow? It may seem trivial but it's breaking some of our macros - and will do the same for our customers' macros too.

    Is there a registry setting that control this behaviour?

    Thanks for looking!

    In what app/program is this happening?

    You do not say where the cursor is when you press the right-click button. It makes a difference.

    Could you go back to your post and select Edit post in the bottom right of it then insert this information.

    Sorry, I can't see an 'Edit Post' option (maybe I need more rep?)

    Its happening in Edit Controls of our application (MFC 2012) but also Notepad, makes me think this is fairly generic behaviour for text editing on this platform.


    So if I make a selection

    Now I press the right arrow key (My Windows 10 1803)

    The cursor is now on the right of the 'n'


    In our 1809 preview build (s)

    it's gone to the RHS of the 'm' instead.

    Do you see this behaviour?

    This shouldn't happen in Notepad, but it might be Show Comments in Word that is turned on.

    Yes, I see the same with 1809 in Notepad. Checked a laptop with an 1709 version and it works as you previously described, moved tio the right of the n.
