I am discovering: 1. can't auto scroll window content while dragging some selected text when it approaches the edge of the window 2. can't drag duplicate some selected text 3. can't drag/drop some selected text between windows are there other missing editing features, do tell please. Thanks I need to use often these moused based editing actions as possible. Why can't the Mac version of Mathematica be a best of breed application for supporting Mac editing? Or, am I missing something here. Or is Mathematica its own world with its own way of doing things, ignoring its host platform? Each platform has editing behaviors for a good reason! Accessibility support is not just about visual or sound. Long live the mouse! Here is a thought: is Workbench the future IDE and the classic IDE is just waiting around till its replaced?
