I am getting the following strange and somewhat annoying behavior in TexMaker for OS X 10.9:

enter image description here

It happens any time a period immediately follows a curly brace. Why? Is there any way to fix this...? Thanks for any tips!

    Did you have a look at this in [issue tracker] (code.google.com/p/texmaker/issues/detail?id=1186), may be changing the editor font would help. – texenthusiast Jan 17 '14 at 5:25
  • Sorry I don't have a solution, but if you have some time on your hands, it would be nice if you could contribute to this. – user10274 Jan 17 '14 at 8:45

    @MarcvanDongen I'm a grad student. If I have time on my hands something is wrong ;) – icurays1 Jan 17 '14 at 16:13

You should try to use another font. Nothing has changed in Texmaker about this : it's probably a trouble with Qt 5.2 on macosx mavericks

  • That link doesn't work any more. Changing the font to Apple Braille in texmaker seems to fix the issue. – juniper- Mar 16 '14 at 8:30
