When typing text, when I add a parenthesis and type some letters in the paired parentheses, the cursor is several letters to the left of where it should actually be. I am zoomed in as I am not getting a font-size increase when I set defaultFontSize to 18.0 ... that might make a difference. Am using the New Dark theme. am on 3.0b30 (30)..

    When I zoom in (a significant amount, not just once or twice) I can
    replicate this as well, but it's not always consistent.

    This seems to be a problem with OS X -- Composer doesn't handle where
    the cursor appears, the OS does.

    As for the font, you have to set a font name and font size in your theme
    if you want to override the preferences (a font size is of no use
    without a font to apply it to), but it's generally easier to just change
    the default font in the preferences. This will affect all themes that
    do not override the default.
