Text cursor, text selection drag/drop, and drag-transfer morph

marcel.taeumel
Hi, there. :-)

In the last two days, I had fun with text selections. You can now drag a selection and drop it somewhere in a(nother) text morph --- if you enable the preference "Draggable Text Selections". As usual, hold [SHIFT] for copy, otherwise it will move.


I also changed TransferMorph to make use of UI themes. You might have to rebuilt your themes via "UserInterfaceTheme cleanUp: true" to see the change.

That's all for this year. :-) Merry Christmas everybody!

Best,
Marcel

P.S.: Please forgive my strange mail application to prefix this list with "Hanh Ho Si via". I am still in the process of figuring out how to control it.

+1, nice !

but i have found a bug if you move contents of line 2 at end of line 1, so you have an excuse for squeaking during the hollidays ;)

Excellent!

Apple keep making their Mail.app more and more annoying. I wish I could find a replacement, though I do have some requirements that I don’t think *anyone* meets.
