Asterisk Section Breaks Delete Text

I don’t know if this is something new with the latest version of Shaxpir or something that’s been around for a while, but I’ve noticed that if I type three asterisks a section break will be created, after which if I hit ALT+Z to undo them I will sometimes lose sections of text.

I’ve triggered this by accident several times when hitting the asterisk key several times in succession to create a visual note to myself, but I haven’t figure out what causes the text removal, as I can’t recreate it manually when I try. Furthermore, I’m not sure if the deleted text appeared before or after the section break, or if the break itself replaces the text or the text is removed when I hit ALT+Z to remove it (as stated above).

I vaguely want to say this has been around for a while now but I’m just not sure. Tonight it caused me to lose a paragraph of work, which was easily recreated, but it got me thinking that this behavior probably warrants a closer look.


Hmmmm… interesting! I’ll take a look. This should be easy to fix…
