Typing cursur jumps back / lagging

What’s The Bug?

I’ve seen some issues marked as solved in this regard.

But I’m on Version: 0.37.17-beta and it still happens from time to time.


Sometimes when I type something the cursor lags behind.

How To Reproduce It

Type something, for example:
Foo Barracuda

My cursor at this point should be at the end of the line, so after the last a of Barracuda|
but sometimes it’s somewhere within the word like Barrac|uda when I stop typing, or jumps back and the word gets scrambled.

The Expected Behavior

The cursor should follow the input consistently.

Maybe there is an issue with your touchpad on the MacBook?
Please try to disable the touchpad.
On Windows notebooks there is a key combination for it (don’t know how it is on Mac).

I typed with a dedicated keyboard without touching a mouse or a touchpad.

It’s pretty rare though.
