Overlapping code text & Preferences question

Hello! I have a curiousity question and a real question.

 

1. Overlapping code text--just curious about your experience

Occasionally my code will overlap on itself, as though the tab stops are wrong. When I select the code you can see two versions of the text (see image), but normally the second version is hidden. This is mainly just an annoyance, because to edit the text I have to place the cursor correctly according to the hidden version. Has anyone else had this happen? 

 

2. Preferences reset each time I open SAS

I disable autocomplete in Preferences > Editor, but the next time I open SAS, it's back to autocompleting. Does anyone have any idea how to make this preference permanent?

 

Thank you!

Regina

1. Yes. And I find it can affect the code submitted so I will usually start a new session at that point.
2. Sorry, I don't know this one.

Thank you Reeza, I took your advice and re-entered the affected code in a new program.

Re: Overlapping code text & Preferences question

Hi Regina,

I've seen #1 before, but not lately. Not sure what's going on with #2. I can take a look, if you can let me know the answers to the following questions...

Are you using SAS University Edition?

If you select the About SAS Studio menu item from the main application menu, which version of SAS Studio is displayed in the About dialog?

Thanks,
Shannon
