In canvas I can select and move a block of text or I can move a single word. In the Text Flow diagramming tool I can select a word and it automatically selects all remaining words in the selection. This is helpful when diagramming the propositional flow of a text.  Could this "select from here to end of text" feature be added to the Canvas? This selection option is helpful when selecting the second half of the first line and all of the remaining lines for indention.

Hi David

I think that what you describe is possible in Canvas. 

You need to select the word first (click) then click again to drag, and the remaining words should follow as well

Richard Wardman:
select the word first (click) then click again to drag,

When I try this, I only move the selected word - see "redemption" below when I tried to move "redemption, the forgiveness of sins."

Interesting that I can do it in a newly created page of the same text in a Canvas document
