I'm on Windows 7 using emacs version
GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (i686-pc-mingw32) of 2015-04-11 on LEG570.
I searched and found the following questions:
- org mode table formatting issue - The answer to this question was to use a monospaced (non-propotional font). In my case I'm using
consolaswhich is a monospace font. So the answer does not apply.
- org-mode table layout - The answer to this question is also to use a monospaced font - So does not apply for my case.
- org-mode table editor behaves strangely - This question remains unanswered.
I don't remember from when this thing had broken. I suspected that the contents (some tag settings etc) might be causing this erratic behaviour and created a new test.org file. It was no different as shown below.
Note: Are there any updates to org-mode which will fix this issue? BTW, my org-version is
Org mode version 9.1.5 (9.1.5-1-gb3ddb0-elpaplus @ c:/Users/path/to/Roaming/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20171225/) and I have not been able to update my
org-plus-contrib package since Jan 2018.
