Jumping from word to word is implemented in utils/library/cursor.scm using go-to-same-buffer. This in turn uses edit_cursor_rep::go_to (path p), which doesn't update the selection.

There are two possible fixes, attached as two different (tiny) patches:

  • Change edit_cursor_rep::go_to (path p) to call edit_select_rep::select_from_cursor () (file bug36681.patch)


  • Change the tm-defined go-to-same-buffer as in bug36681_2.patch to call select-from-cursor.

I think the second one is the less likely to have unwanted side effects. Comments?

Start a text selection with Ctrl-Space and move word by word by Ctrl-RightArrow. Then the selection box does not draw itself.
