Is there a setting for "cursor wrap" or whatever this is called?

I don't know if this is a recent change, or some settings thing that I messed up, but is it possible to change the cursor mode (or whatever it's called) so that it goes to the next line when the cursor is at the end of the line and I press "arrow right"? (And to go back up a line when the cursor is at the beginning and press "arrow left"?)

Here's a GIF illustrating what I mean. First part is Rider, notice the cursor keeps going on the same line. Second part is Visual Studio, notice the cursor goes to the next line.

I've gotten used to this over the years, and it's throwing off my coding groove. If it's a default behavior that people like, that's fine, I just need to know if (and how) to change it.

Per Maarten Balliauw on Twitter (, the setting I'm looking for is "Virtual Space" and uncheck "Allow caret placement" ... "After the end of line". Thanks, Maarten!
