Some terminals are dumb and don't respond to Shift+Arrow keys. LXTerminal
and xterm work fine for me, but Linux's tty terminals are an example of
terminals that are dumb.

The LuaDoc for `select_indented_block()` states:

"Selects indented blocks intelligently. If no block of text is selected,
all text with the current level of indentation is selected. If a block of
text is selected and the lines to the top and bottom of it are one
indentation level lower, they are added to the selection. In all other
cases, the behavior is the same as if no text is selected."

This may explain the Alt+Shift+P behavior you witness.

What do you mean? If you are expecting behavior like other editors, it
probably isn't there. Cursor positions are not marked for returning to.
You can use bookmarks, but those are only for lines, not cursor positions.

I'm not sure I understand the question completely, but ta does not save
cursor positions for closed buffers, only for saved sessions. If you were
to exit ta itself when inside a buffer, the cursor position will be
restored on startup. Please let me know if that didn't answer your
