In general this is useful, there is a problem though.

The character values are incompatible with Text.current_character which don't account for multi-byte characters.

The RNA properties current_character and select_end_character should be wrapped by get/set functions to make the values index the characters instead of the bytes, then they will be compatible with inputs for this function.

This revision now requires changes to proceed.Thu, Aug 1, 11:07 AM
