In Notes if you are in one note then select a different note and execute Shift-Command-Right Arrow, you will see the same behavior. The insertion point moves to the end of the note without selecting any text.
I merely pointed out this behavior is somewhat akin to what you see in LiveCode as you move from field to field with TAB as long as the autoTab property is false. With autoTab set to true the entire contents of the field is selected.

Here the field 'remembers' its previous insertion point during the session rather than always appearing before char 1.
Glad Jacque's autoTab tip works for you!
