[Clip] Cursor position?
- Hi all,
Have I missed something?
If I make a selection covering more than one row in the normal fashion, ie
dragging the mouse forwards-downwards, the insertion bar (=cursor position)
ends up at SELECTION_END. You can see it and verify it with the left or
right arrow keys. This is as would be expected.
However GetRow, GetCol, GetWord and GetChar all point to SELECTION_START
According to Help these functions should
"Return column index (rowindex|word|character) of cursor in current document."
I have always assumed that this meant that the above functions would point
at SELECTION_END (or rather at the end of the mouse click-and-drag action),
and have written several of my clips according to that, and they have
worked OK earlier. They now have to be rewritten.
This seems to be a difference between 4.6 and 4.6a, I have recently changed
to 4.6a, and checking with collegues who haven't, verifies the difference.
So, what gives? Is this a bug or a feature (ie documented)?
