Text selection bug in runbook editor for Edge browser
When editing a runbook and trying to select a single line of text, I cannot select all of the text and end of the selection jumps around. You can reproduce easily if the line is a comment and start with a # symbol.
I am running Windows 10 Enterprise build 14257.rs1_release.160131-1800/
Thanks for submitting this. We will investigate.
This appears to be an issue with the vscode editor that Azure automation uses. We logged the following issue to the vscode team: https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/4345

I've seen this as well.
Also: If the line does not have a space at the end, and the last character is part of a word (ie, not a paren/bracket), the cursor will have its position set to just after the first character of the word.
For $variable, that means after '$'
For $variable.property, that means after 'p'
TBH, I was almost convinced this was simply and issue in Edge causing problems, vs the editor.
Because for instance, in many multi-line text editors (like this one), sometimes when trying to navigate up with the arrow key, it stops moving up at the beginning of a paragraph just after a line break that was created with [Enter] (as opposed to [Shift]+[Enter], oddly enough).
