Beta 5 still has this issue. doesn’t know if this is by design…
how to reproduce:
1. Do a vertical selection.
2. SHIFT+ARROWSHIFT+F8 work as they should.
3. type something. the selection is then be replaced with the text you input. this is fine.
4. SHIFT+ARROW has no effect afterwards. the cursor moves, but selection doesn’t, and text will only append to the last portion of the selection, no mater where your cursor is.
5. SHIFT+F8 changes the cursor from downright corner to upperleft corner, which is correct.
But SHIFT+F8 again changes the cursor from upperleft to downleft, instead of returning to downright.
this is also true with multiple selection.
I reproduced this issue. When a box selection converts to multiple selections (3. by typing something), SHIFT + ARROW no more works. On Beta 6, I will clarify the behavior by clearing all the selections in this case.
