    Fix Version/s:     (was: 9.0)

Having done a little work on this, the underlying issue is the same as for 
NETBEANS-980, so I'm closing this one and making all new comments on that one.

> With line wrap enabled, cursor at end of line is painted at beginning of next 
> line instead

>                 Key: NETBEANS-979
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-979
>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: editor - Painting & Printing
>            Reporter: Eirik Bakke
>            Priority: Major
> In an editor with line wrap enabled, the cursor is shown at the wrong 
> physical location whenever it is supposed to be located at the end of a wrap 
> line. Instead of being painted at the end of the wrap line, it is painted at 
> the beginning of the following line. This causes the behavior of keyboard 
> shortcuts like "End" and "Up" to seem nonsensical to the user, although they 
> might well be behaving correctly wrt. the physical location of the cursor 
> (the character offset).
> To reproduce:
> 1) Go to Options/Preferences->Editor->Formatting, select "All Languages" and 
> set "Line Wrap" to "After words". Click OK.
> 2) Create a new plain text file and open it in the editor.
> 3) Type some gibberish into the editor on a single line that is long enough 
> to be broken into several break lines.
> 4) With the cursor before the first character of the first wrap line in the 
> paragraph, press the "End" key (Command+Right on MacBook keyboards). The 
> cursor appears to move one line down, which is unexpected. From looking at 
> this situation, the user would now assume that they could press the "Up" key 
> to move the cursor back to the previous break line, but this will not change 
> the cursor position (because the cursor is logically on the previous line).
> 5) Another unexpected example: Pressing Home anywhere in a paragraph will 
> move the cursor to the first character on the paragraph rather than at the 
> first character of the wrap line. (This might indicate that the problem is 
> more than just a paint bug, though.)
> Originally reported in BugZilla at 
> https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=242115 . Still reproducible on 
> NetBeans 9.0 rc1.
