Thank you, thank you! That was the problem.

Somehow it never occurred to me that this feature would be related to Morphic,
possibly because it isn't. But the feature is not implemented in MVC, so I
guess that makes it a Morphic preference ;-)

I also find it quite interesting to see how much attention is paid to "making
coding more productive," as if entering more words per minute into code panes
would somehow relate in any positive way to productivity.
