Wow,

building a working text-editor to be used as main driver is kicking my ass right now, the depth of selection wizardry, like where the cursor ends up after text operations, is endless.

A lot of subtle things I've never really noticed until they were gone.

After a thousand back & forths, it's starting to behave like a proper text editor.

@dokoissho I keep alternating between two designs for the copy/paste, but I think I found something I like this morning :)

@neauoire Is it working currently? I can select and delete text in docs but haven't been able to paste any text in from outside.

@dokoissho you need to put the text you want to bring into left in the .snarf file. That hasn't worked ?

@dokoissho look at the video just above to see how I do it with:
