(orig question was regarding fonts)
I think because of block-selection it MUST have regularly spaced characters?
"LineEdit can do any font as long as it is monospace" Wink
and that this is so by design

Now I want to select some text from code and I cannot figure out how to.
Say I have three lines of text in the LineEdit like so:
abc def ghi
jkl mno pqr
stu vwx yz
and I want to select from code the word "mno", how to do that?
I looked at SetSelection() but it does strange things - don't understand it at all.

Also: how do I set the blinking caret to be at the start of the above selection?

We really really really need proper documentation for Upp.
Is there such an effort underway? I'd like to contribute to it for the bits I understand
and usage/call examples similar to how http://en.cppreference.com/w/ does it.
I spend a lot of time tracing code for info that should be part of proper documentation.
