Last modified: 2012-11-07 01:18:58 EST
Description of problem:
When editing a very long word (such as URL) which is wider than the cell editor, press right-arrow key does not necessary move the cursor to next character.
This happens in both Firefox and Chrome
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Zanata version 1.8.0-SNAPSHOT (20120928-0032)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit any document in any project version.
2. Put a wider-than-cell-editor word in the cell editor,
such as "123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890"
3. Move the cursor to the beginning of the string.
4. Press the right arrow key.
Cursor moved to next line or some random place
Cursor move to next character.
committed into master:
Tested with Zanata version 1.8.0-SNAPSHOT (20121011-0029) on Firefox ESR 10.0.6
and Google Chrome 15.0.874.121
After paste the string: 123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890
The sympton describe in the bug description is gone.
However, now the text area does not follow the cursor when it is out of range.
i.e. Suppose the screen wide is 80 character, and the text area still shows column 1~80 when the cursor is at column 90. Which make the editing actions invisible to user.

The scroll to cursor happens a bit late(about typing three characters will trigger a scroll to cursor). You will have to manually use the scrollbar.
Before we upgrade to codemirror 3(at the moment still in BETA version and is not backward compatible), we have to use a scrollbar when a line is not breakable by words.
Please raise another bug(upgrade to codemirror version 3) for this to be properly resolved.
According to firstname.lastname@example.org, the cursor moving issue is different issue and will not be fixed until codemirror 3 is released.
Thus I open the Bug 866352 for tracing the codemirror 3.
This bug can be VERIFIED wiht Zanata version 1.8.0-SNAPSHOT (20121012-0031)
Fix released in Zanata 2.0.
