Description Len Charest 2012-10-23 15:52:46 UTC
Given an existing XML comment on a property as follows:

    /// <summary>
    /// Gets or sets a value indicating whether this instance is frobbed.
    /// </summary>
    protected bool IsFrobbed { get; set; }

If I want to add another element (e.g., <remarks/>) and I type "<remarks>", MD inserts the closing tag and keeps the cursor positioned between the tags. However, immediately after typing the first character of the comment content, the cursor jumps past the closing tag to the end of the line.


    /// <remarks>|</remarks>

The cursor is indicated by "|" above. Now, If I type "A", MD will move the cursor as follows:

    /// <remarks>A</remarks>|

The unexpected cursor movement is the bug.

We've fixed it internally - but it'll take some time to release the version. (It was planned to release this month, but we needed to delay it)
It looks maybe easy, but there are some components involved in this issue :/ - would be hard to backport it to the master branch.
