Whatever Notetab does or doesn't do with the cursor while
text is defined, the underlying Windows practice is to
leave the cursor position undefined while text is selected.
(It was probably programmed that way to emulate the Mac,
All that's definitive is that the cursor position is more
or less <the whole of the selection>. If, after selecting
some text, be it manually or automatically, you then press
the left cursor key, you go to the beginning of the
selection. And vice versa.
Concurrently, any keyboard entry deselects. As does a
left click on the mouse. Alternatively, if it's a textual
key (including <end of paragraph> or Enter, Tab etc.), the
key entered replaces the selection.
It follows that a clip, after finding text, has to take
some action merely to make the cursor position definitive.
