Description Noam Silvy 2014-07-11 11:28:55 UTC
It would be quite handy to be able to do the following thing (possible on all other text editor I know) :
When your cursor is on the last line but not at the end of it, simply press the down arrow to go at the end of the file (end of that line).
Thank you !
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

Dear Noam,

I have seen this functionality in regular linux text editors like gedit/pluma and i guess it could be something worth having.

We are a french group of students who works on a project. That's why we decided to resolve this "bug". The only thing we need is to know in which file(s) we have to work. If someone know, it will be very helpful.
