How do I Select-Drag an entire line or PART of a line or PART of a word or PART of anything or MANY lines at once ?

I am assuming you are referring to some form of mouse marking :?:

Zeus supports mouse controlled cut and copy :( For example it is possible to select some text with the mouse, click on the text and drag that text to another location.

But Zeus does have several mouse marking options. Firstly, to change the default mouse marking mode use the Options, Editor Options menu, and in the General section select the default mouse marking mode. The installer sets the default mouse marking mode to Column mode.

Zeus also comes with two secondary mouse marking modes. To use these marking modes hold down the Ctrl or Alt keys as the mouse is used to mark the text area. These keys will activate the Line and Block marking modes.

Finally Zeus has a making mode designed to help with the marking of large areas of text. To use this marking mode click the mouse at the starting point of the marked area, making sure the shift key is not pressed. Next press the shift key and click the mouse at the end point of the marked area. The end point of the marked area can be further adjusted by repeating the last step with additional mouse click and shift key combinations. Also while the shift key is down, you can use the scrollbars to locate the end point of the marked area.

Similarly there are several options to mark text using the keyboard but the keys used will depend on the keyboard mapping that is currently active.

I hope this has answered your question, but if not feel free to post any number of further questions :)

Cheers Jussi
