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
