Cursor not matching up to where text is being placed


Whenever I need to edit code the cursor shows up where I clicked, but the text does not get inserted where the cursor is. This is causing me major frustration and I don’t know why this has suddenly become a problem. Please help.


Sounds like you’re using Internet Explorer. Cloud9 works okay for me using Firefox & Chrome (ie, modern browsers). Make sure to let the browser update itself - if it hasn’t done so in a long while.

Or try restarting your Cloud9 workspace. Click on the top menu - Cloud9 - Restart Workspace.


this can happen when the font is not monospace, did you modify font-family setting in preferences?
