By default when you type in gEdit, mouse disappears and you can get it back by moving your mouse. So, you can do whatever you want using your mouse.
But when I press Shift or Ctrl or Enter and move the mouse to get the it back on screen, it won't work. The mouse will be shown when it's moved and suddenly disappears. So, I can't do any actions using it. This is a very weird bug. To get back the mouse, I have to right click on the editor.
Is this a known bug? How can I fix it? Has only gEdit (version 3.10.4) have this bug? Should I downgrade it to lower version?
I've tested this on leafpad Text Editor and this problem doesn't exist there.
When you're typing for a while (like 30 minutes or more), sometimes gEdit won't allow typing anymore, but you can save the file and do other stuff. There won't be any cursor to make it normal again, you have to close the gEdit window and start new one.
As far as I tested, this "new gEdit" is way too buggy.
Is there any other lightweight (or not) text editors like gEdit with code markup and other stuff ?
When gEdit is ran in root (
gksudo gedit), this bug doesn't seem to exist. So, why does this bug occur in normal user and not in root ?
