Hey,

I have a problem with the display of matching parenthesis in cursive. I am using the latest version of intellij and cursive.

In the Attachment (Cursor.png) you can see, that the cursor is before a the ')', but selected in blue is the parenthesis after the cursor. When you press ctrl+w for selecting the expression, the '1' is selected. This is always the case: the parenthesis after the cursor is selected. There is one special case: When the cursor is at the end of the line, the parenthesis before the cursor is selected. 

This was not the case in earlier versions, but I can't remember, which version broke that for me.

You can see how it should work in the examples in the cursive-guide. In https://cursive-ide.com/userguide/paredit.html you can see, that always the parenthesis before the cursor is selected with blue. 

No one else having this problem? Is this a preference which can be made somewhere? It drives me crazy.

This happened to me just a few releases back, as well.

Hi Bret and Helmut, 

This is a known problem in the IntelliJ platform, unfortunately. 


I hope this bug gets resolved soon, because once you are used to the old behaviour, this new behaviour is quite annoying.

Yes, I'm really hoping this gets fixed in 2019.2, or even better a 2019.1  point release - it is indeed very annoying.

Cheers,
Colin
