selecting text and dragging from the middle of it only appears next to mouse and on release does not move the text anywhere, only showing the selected text on the mouse move back to the original selection. This is really useful for moving text quickly; the other option is cutting and pasting text which is slow and inefficient. All other text editors I have worked with have this, so I am assuming this is a bug and would hope to see it fixed soon.
