Speed editing by accurately highlighting selected text when there are intervening figures, tables, footnotes
To edit our documents, sometimes we want to select the main text without selecting intervening figures, tables, footnotes. Other times we want to select both the text and the figures.
Currently bakoma tex preview window represents the selection with yellow highlights, but they do not reflect what is actually selected (intervening figure is highlighted but is not truly selected - e.g. delete the selection and the figure remains. Other times (e.g. selection in source window) the reverse is true, the whole figure is not highlighted in yellow but pressing delete will delete the figure.
If highlights could be more precise and there were two ways to select text (with and without the figures , tables etc) that would speed editing of our documents.
