Newbie here ... I started using the 'old' 1.8.16 ide, but thought I'd give the new beta a go.
I get some really weird auto-newlines being inserted - I notice it particularly with comments ...
I'll position my cursor at the end of a regular statement, the press return. The cursor opens a newline, and positions itself correctly to whatever the current indent is. Great.
I type '//' and the editor inserts '// ' at column 1. Not what I want as I'd prefer the comments to obey the current indent position, but I can live with that.
Now I type my comment. After about 4 chars, the cursor drops to the next lower line, column 1 and inserts my text. No newline has been inserted, so the comment chars are added to the beginning of the next line of code. This is really BAD.
If I backtrack to the beginning of my comment and press backspace, the comment is joined up to the previous line, but with a load of extra whitespace.
I now have to manually sort out the comment line, AND the code line.
This gets VERY annoying
My host system is Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon (based on Ubuntu 18.04 'bionic')
java -version gives
openjdk version "11.0.11" 2021-04-20
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.11+9-Ubuntu-0ubuntu2.18.04)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.11+9-Ubuntu-0ubuntu2.18.04, mixed mode, sharing)
Do I need any special OS requirements - I didn't spot any when I loaded the beta ?
I can't find anyone else experiencing this kind of problem ... which leads me to believe the problem is something simple that I'm missing.
Any help ?
