Fix way Text attributes are handled

Many times when I want to make a portion of text Bold or Underlined it does not work.

If for example in the following phrase

I want to make part of this text bolded to see it better

I select the portion

make part of this text bolded

then click the button B or U to apply the text attribute the resulting phrase is

I want to *make part of this text bolded *to see it better

not showing as bold when I finished editing.

It would show as bold if the 2nd '*' was before the blank and not after.

This probably happens because the selection of portion of text, with mouse, automatically includes the blank after the last selected word.

I could manually correct the last selection skipping the last blank but,

you can simply make the attribute function smart enough to place the '*' before the blank and not after, since if after it does not work.

I hope this annoying little detail gets fixed soon.
