Actually I did, but the way (the other) Juanma said it¹ made me think he was
simply unaware of transient-mark-mode. I know it would be odd, but there are
many odd things going on in this discussion. And, of course, oddity is

¹ "I do use CUA mode, though not for C-x etc. Selection with shift-keys and
visible region are very big pluses against the Emacs defaults, IMHO."

One of the odd things was that about opening a file in Emacs being
difficult. I wonder why is that. Specially now that, in addition to aaaaall
the rest, you can drag'n'drop from a bunch of window managers into Emacs.
