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.

This is because by default ctrl+C is assigned to Edit → Copy
Assigning ctrl+C to Edit → Copy Selection should solve your issue.
Tools → Properties for All Configurations → Keyboard → 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).
