[Editing] - small improvement of Text HighLighting

Currently highlighting of a text will cancel it's selection. It will be nice if highlighted text remains selected.

Hi Oleg,

this is done so because otherwise the effect of the action won't be visible (the highlight will only become visible after
you cleared the selection).
We struggled with Richedit for a while to make a different selection color when upon highlighted areas, but it seems this
can't be done - the color of selection is not changeable.
So I guess the current behavior is the lesser evil.
