On a mouseclick to one side of the text, it can be convenient to make the cursor jump to:
- the beginning of the line (when clicking left of the text)
- the end of the line (when clicking right of the text)
This is the default behaviour of most text editors (also the one used for editing this very entry), so it can help to make emacs more beginner (user?) friendly.
Currently, the cursor either doesn't move (1.) or it jumps to the beginning of the next line (2.). Most people probably use
C-E instead, but it would be good to be able to leave that out.
