[StrongED] Suggestion for copy drag'n drop + correction for late SHIFT key press

Hi all.
In BasASM mode, I have noticed that once some text is selected,
it is possible to move it elsewhere with the left mouse button, drag'n drop style, which is great.
But if you want to copy the selected text, you need to keep the SHIFT key pressed.
Could it be possible to use the right mouse button to do exactly that (copy function) additionally ?
Both operations would be 100% mouse driven, that would be convenient.

Also, I have noticed that if you have started to drag the selected text and then
press SHIFT, !SE doesn't recognise the SHIFT key being pressed and operates the
 move function (and not the copy function as one might expect).
Maybe the !SE code should check if SHIFT is being pressed when the left mouse button is released,
and not only at the beginning when the left mouse button is pressed ?

Thanks again for !SE, it is a fantastic tool to use.
I'd certainly not code on the Archie had this editor not existed.
Fred I owe you several beers and a fine meal if we ever meet ;-)
