I have had to use "Select after char -1 of fld X". I was actually using it
to place the cursor at various character positions in a field in a
rawKeyDown handler - I was using predictive lookup in rawKeyDown as a field
validation technique, playing around after David, Mark, and BvG's EXCELLENT
LiveCode V session yesterday.
An example is in the last field of my attached test stack.

Hi Josh, thanks so much. No, I was using "focus on field x". The dictionary
says that if the field is unlocked text then the insertion point is placed
after the text in the field. I think I'll suggest that line be removed since
it clearly (in a number of tests) places it at the beginning.
However, your suggestion works perfectly, thanks!
