Is this a Matlab bug? The use of Ctrl + A to select all

I use Ctrl + A and then right click "smart indent" a lot.
Unfortunately, every time I do that, my cursor is moved to the very end of my script. This is very annoying, because I have tens of thousands of lines. Is there an easy way to make sure that when I apply Ctrl + A, my cursor will stay at my current location?


OK. Many thanks!
The best way to complain about this behaviour is indeed to raise a service request with Mathworks as per Daniel M's comment. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to change, however the editor is constantly being improved so it may come as a result of other improvements.
In my opinion, Matlab's editor is indeed lacking compared to other code editors, including free ones.
As for this particular behaviour, I don't think there is a workaround at present, other than the bookmarking method mentioned, which is indeed awkward.
I have created a bug report for this. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

You can add bookmark to return to your line. Crtl+F2 and just F2
