There is no need to create a macro for this as StrongED can already do
this but in a slightly different way. What you want is to select some
text without moving the caret, and then copy it to where the caret is.

Easy, just hold down Ctrl while selecting the text then Ctrl-C to copy
the text. Hold down Ctrl again, select next bit of text, Ctrl-C to copy,
