    If I press Control+C to cut something to the clipboard and I have nothing selected then the clipboard contains nothing.

    Surely Control+C should only work if you have something selected?

    Otherwise I overwrite what I previously cut/copied.

    Consider moving a block of text.
    I hit Control+X to move it to the clipboard.

    Then I hit Control+C by mistake instead of Control+V to insert the text elsewhere (as they’re right next to each other on the keyboard – all WordStar’s fault).

    However now the clipboard contains nothing instead of my cut text as there is nothing selected.

    So I have to undo to get my text back in the original place and start again.

    thanks

    This is because by default ctrl+C is assigned to Edit → Copy

    Assigning ctrl+C to Edit → Copy Selection should solve your issue.

    Reassign by:
    Tools Properties for All ConfigurationsKeyboard Category: Edit + Commands: Copy Selection + hit ctrl+C in the Press New Shortcut key box + then click Assign

    This should solve your problem (it does on my machine with EmEditor Professional (64-bit) Version 17.2.5 and Windows 10 Version 1709).
