I'd like an option which, after cursoring up or down, would automatically return the
cursor left or right to the initial character position of the previous edit. For
- cursor right to character position 20
- type 10 characters, stopping on position 30
- cursor down
- cursor automatically returns to position 20
This could work for typing, pasting, backspacing, and selecting. TextPad addicted me to it, but I can't find such an editor that works on the Mac. I found something on the jedit-users that said jEdit used to do this for pasting only in 2002, but it doesn't now.

|So this is basically a next line followed by a smart-home ?
you can make a macro with that very easily.
Do you really need an option or special feature for that ?

|I don't think it's smart home. I read it that Kwiniec would like typing not to change the magic caret position.|
