Hello

I found this small bug, that I found kinda amusing. when in "insert" mode, your caret gets bigger, as it should to show that you are not inserting anymore, rather writing over. But if you place your caret at a tab, it gets as big as the tab.

reproduce in SyntaxEditor:
1. Press tab
2. press insert
3. press left-arrow.

I guess its coded so that it should cover the entire symbol it will write over, but in the case of tab, it looks "interesting"... :)

Not a big thing, but I thought I should let you know.

Aw, you don't like our big caret? :)

Actually Visual Studio, which we model much of SyntaxEditor after, does the same thing.

Ah, well. :)

We use spaces as tabs, so I can't see that on my machine, I just compared it to some other apps, like editplus. :)

No problem, Maybe me and good old "giant caret of death" can make up and become friends instead. :)
