This text editing system initially detects a user’s cursor placement within a selection of text. The system can then receive a text input from the user using a particular input mode. Accordingly, the system modifies the selection of text based on the received text input and the particular input mode. If the received text input is a character or the particular input mode is character-based, the system inserts the character at a point of the selection of text. If the received text input is a word or the particular input mode is word-based, the system replaces the selection of text with the received word.
