Block select placing cursor at wrong location

Reported by somethingkindawierd | September 20th, 2010 @ 10:03 PM

Problem: after indenting a block of text the cursor position is incorrect.

I have a section of php code that looks like this:

    private function Init() {
        $R = YottaBox::$yAction['_YOTTA_']['REQUEST'];
        if(isset($R['creationDate']) && isset($R['minROI'])) {
            $minClicks      = (isset($R['minClicks'])) ? $R['minClicks'] : 0;
            $minImpressions = (isset($R['minImpressions'])) ? $R['minImpressions'] : 0;
            $minCost        = (isset($R['minCost'])) ? $R['minCost'] : 100;
            $this->keywordList = $this->discoverStaleKeywords(
            $this->adGroupList = $this->groupKeywordsByAdGroup();
            return TRUE;
        return FALSE;
     * Discover all keywords with an ROI below the acceptable level
    private function discoverStaleKeywords(
        $minClicks = 0, 
        $minImpressions = 0, 
        $minCost = 0) {
        $result = array();
            $query = "
                    KW.`Id` AS Keyword_Id

I was trying to make some phpdoc comments, so I copied the parameters from the function call to the comment area of the function definition. Then I was going to block-select the front of the text, tab it over to the correct place, and format accordingly.

Here's the section I was going to indent:


Attachment Selection_001.png shows the data after copying it, before selecting it.

Attachment Selection_002.png shows the selection I made.

I then pressed the tab key to indent the text

Attachment Selection_003.png shows the position of the cursor after pressing the tab key.
