I find that the Cut operation isn’t working right in text mode.
Type a test string in Text mode, say “123456789”
Select a small substring by putting the cursor between, say, the 2 & 3 and then shift clicking, say between the 4 & 5. “34” will be selected.
Hit Cmd-X to cut the selected text.
Expected: “34” goes to the clipboard; all other text unchanged. In this example it should look like “1256789”
What happens: “34” goes to the clipboard, but the ensuing glyphs the same size of the selection are lost. In this example I get “12789”
By the way, is there a reason in text mode that you can’t shift-drag to select a portion of text in the familiar way?
