Description Harald Koester 2012-12-14 18:09:49 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
(1) Open new text document.
(2) Define a left tab about 2 cm left from the right margin.
(3) Insert one word at the beginning of the first line.
(4) Insert tab. The Cursor jumps to the tab position of step (2).
(5) Insert a word, which is longer than 2 cm. When the right margin is arrived an empty line is inserted and the word is positioned at the beginning of the third line !!! Expected behaviour: No empty line and word is positioned at the beginning of the second line.
(6) Try to correct this behaviour: Set cursor at the beginning of the second line and then Backspace. It does not delete the second line but the last letter of the word in the first line.

Operating System: Windows 7
