Description ProjectOrc 2015-08-27 05:25:52 UTC
Using Control+Shift+R to create a tall and zero-character-width text cursor causes subsequent typing to appear in "reverse".

Starting text:

	et cetera

Press Control+Shift+R and then drag the mouse to select the beginning of the first three lines such that the box-cursor is 0 characters wide (the | below represents the cursor):

	|et cetera

Type 1 and then 2.

Expected final text:

	12et cetera

Actual final text:

	21et cetera

I see why this is happening but I view this as counterintuitive.
This is the opposite of the behaviour of Notepad++
