Can I drag and drop characters within the same TRichEdit ?

Hello experts, is it possible to drag and drop individual characters in a single-line TRichEdit, to simply another position within the same TRichEdit? In other words, "re-arrange" them... while keeping all the character attributes intact (color, style, etc) ?

Yes, it is possible. I have just tested this and it works.

I'm going to continue to test this, but I'm assuming right now that it *does* retain all its proper attributes (style, color, etc) after you drag/drop...?
