It's difficult to guess what might be causing the issues you describe. Could you please attach a screenshot?

Just a wild guess: It might be caused by a font with wrong kerning. Does it make a difference if you change to a different font in the preferences?

Hi, my computer have been upgraded and the octave installed back.
The octave's editor is not working well.
It changed somethings on my script, like spaces, and the cursor is not referring to its location. And when I make a change on the script it is not appearing the * on the name of the open file that tells that the changes are not saved.
I opened the same script on gedit and it worked all right. My keyboard is also working good.

My operating system is linux and the Octave's version is 6.4.0.
