John, I suggest you make a test recording and play with the

you describe as the two functions of the arrow keys, it is not so
strange once you have done a bit of experimenting. Clearly,
pressing left or right arrow key can only clear a selection if a
selection has been made. While you cannot imagine when you would
do that, I both do it a lot and find it most useful. If - say -
