Yes, *I* have the problem. That's why I'm the one reporting it, right?
Also, there are actually only three commenters in this thread (you, me, and
Jay), so we're not really a representative sample one way or the other, as much
as I wish I could claim to represent 66% of users.
I *entirely* agree that it's a very low-priority tweak. I honestly thought I
was doing my part, as someone who doesn't code, by making the suggestion. And
yeah, I don't know how to code, so that's not something I can help with.
Believe me, I'd love to be able to fix it myself and just offer a solution.
What's frustrating is to just be told "that's a bad idea" without any real
explanation as to why. Just saying other word processors do X (or shouldn't
have done X) doesn't address the problem. If it's simply so low on the list of
priorities that it's not worth talking about, I can accept that, but, all due
respect, you didn't say that.
The status was "resolved" and "wontfix" earlier today. It's been changed since
