SAS Editor Cursor error

Hello friends,

 

Hope you all are doing great. I am stuck with one silly thing here. 

 

When I type the code in my SAS Studio(University Edition) My cursor points to the previous letter. 

For example, when I type PROC FREQ DATA, the cursor don't end after the letter 'A' but before. This is kind of annoying when  

I want to edit some letters in SAS statements, and it's confusing me with space and backspace.  

Surprisingly, this happens only for SAS Command statements like  DATA,  PROC and  RUN. 

When I highlight these statements in the editor, by selecting all the lines, A shadow of those lines with correct spacing appears.

Please find the screenshot below.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: SAS Editor Cursor error

I was referring to the browser setting. CTRL + to increase zoom on browser. Reset it to 100% if you have changed this setting  

 

It appears as if there are known issues with Chrome at the moment. Use Firefox as a workaround.

Try changing the setting to have the view as Actual Size or 100%, ie no zoom.
