Summary0010963: Cursor forgets position of text frame when opening Story Editor
DescriptionI searched to see whether this feature was already submitted and didn't find anything. Story Editor always initializes with the I-bar (cursor) at the beginning of the text. It would be more efficient if it was located in the same location as editing text within a frame and then launching Story Editor.
Steps To Reproduce1) Double-click a populated text frame to initiate text-editing mode.
2) Move the I-bar (cursor) to anywhere other than the beginning of the text.
3) Right-click in the text frame and choose Edit Text.
Result:
Story Editor opens, but with the I-bar(cursor) at the beginning of the text instead of where text was being edited within the frame.
Additional Informationissue still persists on OSX 10.10.5 1.5.2svn r21076

Added screencast showing that SE doesn't remember where the cursor was in the textframe when we called SE.
