After upgrading over the weekend to OSX Mojave, my cursor doesn't work.  I recorded a video of it and will upload it.  

At the top of the query window, if I scroll down anywhere in my queries with my mouse, it moves.  When I use the up and down arrows, the cursor bounces back and forth like PONG  or a tennis ball on the screen, not moving the actual screen.  Up does this every time, down seems to just go off the screen.  

I tried to dump all of the user settings in ~/Library/Application Support/MySQL and that did nothing.  

How to repeat:
No idea.  Does it every time for me.

Suggested fix:
Make it work? No idea.

This doesn't work in 8.0.14 either.  Can't scroll with keyboard.  Find doesn't work.

We are aware of this ugly problem (caused by the 3rd party control Scintilla) and will solve it in one of the next releases.

As a workaround scroll the editor content vertically once after opening and the arrow keys will start working as expected.

Hi, I am experiencing the exactly same issue even with the latest version (8.0.15).  The workaround described doesn't work for me.

For me the workaround was downgrade to the version 6.3.10. Now the arrow keys and find function work properly again.

I'm wondering if there is any update coming on this.  I am going to try 6.3.10 as another commenter suggested in the meantime.

This still doesn't work in 8.0.16.
