   Say I have a line
   and I want to put one chinese char in each of the two gaps.  I go
   to the first blank, select the correct char., then want to move to
   the second blank with a few C-f ...
   I type

   b a n g 4 C-f 

   because i see the default choice is correct already
   I dont need to select say the 3rd character with

   b a n g 4 3 C-f 

   If I use just the 4 version, and not the 4 3 version, I will still
   be in character select mode, and the C-f will just rotate choices
   instead of moving the cursor... which is very unnatural after so
   many years of habit.

   Anyways, the feeling is "OK, I've already got what I want on the
   screen, now can I please move around?"  It seems that the easiest
   way under the present scheme is to hit SPC Backspace, to break out
   of character select mode... a wee bit easier to type than C-\.

Dan, I tried this, and it seems to me there's a very simple solution
that doesn't involve rebinding any keys.  If I understand you
correctly, your problem is that you don't want to keep inputting
`bang4', having inputted it once correctly.

Let's try it:


I'm going to insert 膀 (typed b a n g 4 in GB as you say) in each of
the 3 blank spaces.

I position myself in the 1st blank and type b a n g 4 and now have 


and the point is positioned after the chinese char 膀.  

Now I select the chinese char 膀 with the mouse by clicking mouse-3 on
the previous position.

Now the chinese char 膀 is in the kill ring, and I can paste it in the
other 2 SPCs with mouse-2.   So two mouse clicks later I have:


Is that good enough?  Did I understand you correctly?
