Sorry, I looked at the wrong part of your original message. As 
mentioned, changing my example to "select" is easy. I needed to select 
text the way I suggested back in LC 6.6.5 but I just tried it in 7.0.6 
and it isn't needed any more (or else I did something wrong back in 
6.6.5 that made me think it was needed.)

At any rate, this seems to work fine in 7.x:

   select gCurrentSelection

Which someone else also mentioned. I forget who that was but they were 
right.
