I haven't been working with emacs in years but if "forward word"
means "move cursor forward by one word" then yes, this would be
intuitive for me. But the result of pedit's text moving is different
If I have:
1 2 3 4 |5| 6 7 8 (with the selection between | and |)
and I do a right buttonslide on WC, I get:
1 2 3 6 4 |5| 7 8
while I expected to get:
1 2 3 4 6 |5| 7 8
I expected 5 to move one word to the right but ended up with 6 being
moved two words to the left (okay, actually both 4 and 5 moved one
word to the right but that's not how it looks at first sight). If I
wanted to move 4 as well, I could have just included it in the
Maybe things are different on the Mac/Unix (my vi days are even
longer ago) but all editors I know never touch anything outside of
the current selection (unless you specifically tell them to work on
the entire document).
