Currently it looks like “contract selection” only works to undo “expand selection”, but it would be nice if it could narrow the selection further. For example, in the following sequence:
- Put the cursor in the middle of a word in a sentence.
- Hit Control-S to select the sentence.
- Hit Option-Command-Down to contract selection.
I would expect the selection to shrink down to the word, and next the inter-letter position, of the cursor before step 2, but currently step 3 has no effect.
