More thoughts on a non-stupid text editor

I'm doing some post-editing for Portuguese today (I know, I know, never do MT post-editing, but this customer is a good one and I just couldn't say no). As usual with post-Systran work, there is a lot of dragging and dropping involved, and frankly? Word freaking sucks at dragging and dropping. Why should that be? Why can't I drag a word from the end of a punctuated sentence into its middle and have Word get the spacing right?

The mind boggles.

So it looks like I'm just going to have to break down and address non-stupid text editing again.
