wrapping spaces to "0". Now repeat step (1). Note that the cursor is before the

Setting wrapping spaces to 0 is a sensible thing to do when inserting formulas
into text lines, anchored as characters. But because of the different ESC key
behaviour one needs an extra "->" key to be able to continue writing.

Ideally the cursor would always be placed after an object when deselecting it
with ESC.
