can clipped or moved text stay highlighted?

This may be a bug, or it may be a wish: When I highlight and move and/or cut-copy a block of text, after I have moved it to it’s new location (or pasted), I would like it to stay highlighted, like in Word. Scrivener releases my highlight and so I am forced to search for the boundaries of the block of text manually.

Hum, I will make a note of this and we’ll see. Certainly it seems usual for dragged text to stay selected, although I don’t think that’s as often the case for pasted text?

You can triple-click a paragraph to select the whole thing, but I’m assuming you’re moving chunks within paragraphs (or spanning paragraphs), so that may not help you much.
