Caret at compiler error mark

I find it annoying that the caret is not placed at the first error mark generated by the compiler.
It would be nice to just hit the backspace key or left arrow key and make the correction rather than having to mouse
over to the point.

Does anyone else feel this way?

I just took an existing file and modified it to generate a few compilation errors and the cursor was positioned immediately after the first error marker. Unless I misunderstood what you said it behaved how you want it to.

Have you got a simple example you can show us which exhibits the problem you reported. Where does it position the cursor?

Placing the caret at the first error marker is definitely the normal behavior.
In addition you can press Ctrl-E for moving to the next error marker.

My error!
I am not sure why I thought that.
Perhaps it was a function of the compiler tool I was using.
Sorry
