Subject: Shift-select from Dedit window should include PP''ed <CR>s and spaces

Subject': Lisp': Shift Select of PP should retain form'
Would it bother anyone very much if you made the shift-select of something from a DEit window, retain <CR>s at the end of logical lines?  It would be very useful to be able to shift-select program code into a TEdit buffer, in PP''ed form, instead of as one llong string, for documentation purposes.  '

Having the shift select preserve PP formatting is not so easy as it might seem. Also the formatting info is probably wrong if you move to another window since it is right margin dependent. Solving both these problems together is very hard for the current crufty PP.'
But it''s not unreasonable. Just unlikely. I''ll put it on the wish list.'
