indeed, i see the benefit of this in the most common used activities, for me split and copy, (where ctrl-drag does a good), but mostly split, though of course with use i may see the wider benefits -

with split, its so used that the expected behaviour not working because that item has a time selection on it is indeed odd, and also very common, in which case the benefits of the system are reduced and you're likely back to 2 actions.
auto-removing the selection in a macro does help most of my initial reservations with it btw.

so was just thinking aloud on how to get it to work in that particular case, hence the last moved (cursor or selection) having priority idea.

it is all shiny and new against 'old habits' at the moment so some time to give it a work out is the best way to judge whether i employ it. good to have though of course.
