Qt Creator - Jump to cursor behavior

  • This is a question regarding the Qt Creator editor.

    When I am browsing my code using the mouse (scroll bars, or mouse wheel), after about 30 seconds, the editor will automatically jump back to where I left the text cursor and I have to go back to what I was just looking at. Is there some way to disable this behavior?

    I am using Qt Creator 2.4.0 on Arch Linux x64


  • Whenever I explicitly try to reproduce it, it doesn't happen, only when I'm trying to do actual work :S I tried to reproduce it by scrolling away from the cursor and leaving it alone, and it never jumps.

    Unless my keyboard is sending phantom keystrokes, I don't think that's the cause. In any case, the cursor is always in the same spot that I left it. I've also verified that it isn't related to autosave.

    I'll update when I get a better idea of what user actions cause it to occur.

  • Thanks! Filing "a bug report":http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/ once you found a way to reproduce the issue would be appreciated.
