Description Dávid Horváth 2019-04-21 15:29:48 UTC
Up key does not move to line ended by hyphen if you start the moving from a more right position than the hyphen.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new document, and write some long text.
2. Type a hyphen in a word, ensure that the word will be broken.
3. Move the cursor to a later line's end that is more at the right that the hyphen.
4. Press the up key repeatedly, try to move to the top of the document.

Actual Results:
You can not reach the top. Cursor will get stuck at the start of the line next to the hyphen. (Behavior is the same that this line would be the first line in the document.)

Expected Results:
Cursor should be move to the previous line.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Sadly, I can not attach a sample.

Copy the above sample text into a new document with standard settings. Move after the "!" sign. Press the up key repeatedly.
