Fixing the bug where Sublime Text 2 selects all the text below your cursor

If you use Sublime Text 2 for your web developing like I do, you may have come across this really annoying issue – every now and then, seemingly randomly, when you click on a line to edit something, it annoyingly selects that whole line and every line underneath it as well! It makes simple editing a right PITA, and I usually just bear with it until it fixes itself, or restart the application. However, today I decided to Google it and see if there was a solution, and it seems that there is. Hooray!

Just add the following to your User Settings (not the global settings) within Sublime Text 2:

"scroll_past_end": true

That’s been doing my head in for a few years now, glad I Googled it in the end!
