When I am in layout mode and have the text ruler module active for entering text, changing rulers etc., and I mark a text as a block, the cursor remains at the old place. That means that the block is in one place and the cursor in another. In most word processors that I have used, the cursor always is in the beginning of the block. When I then press Delete, Backspace or enter a new text, the block is automaticly erased, and eventually the new text takes the place of the block. In Clamsu not. The block maintains intact and the text is changed where the cursor is, that is somewhere else. In Eddie this is possible to change with a setting. Not in the layout mode. I miss this function a lot. Is there a smart reason that I do not know about for having it the way it is today? If not, I suggest a change.
First of all, marking a text block in the text layout mode offers the possibility to pick the text style of this block - while the text edit cursor can be placed somewhere else. This was a wanted feature from many users a long time ago.
We are busy implementing a new text format with a new layout text editor (not before SL2005!) which will offer multiple text blocks in the layout text editor, too.
