[jira] [Created] (PIVOT-992) "getSelectedText" in TextPane always gets a trailing newline regardless of whether the end of line is selected or not

JIRA jira@apache.org
Roger Whitcomb created PIVOT-992:
------------------------------------

             Summary: "getSelectedText" in TextPane always gets a trailing newline regardless of whether the end of line is selected or not
                 Key: PIVOT-992
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-992
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: wtk
    Affects Versions: 2.0.4, 2.1
            Reporter: Roger Whitcomb
            Assignee: Roger Whitcomb
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.1, 2.0.5


Because of the way the "getSelectedText()" method is implemented it will construct a separate document containing an enclosing paragraph and then put the selected range of stuff into that document.  But for simple text, that enclosing paragraph causes the PlainTextSerializer to output a line break.  Thus the selected text result will always end in a newline even if the selection does not encompass the end of the line.  This differs from the result of "getText(...)" using the selection bounds.
