I may repeat myself, but please study the book "The Oberon System" by Martin
You will learn what the difference between "caret" and "cursor" is. What a
"marker" is used for.
How to process pressed keys. A lot of interesting stuff how the Oberon
system works.
What conventions you HAVE TO FOLLOW, so you can successfully implement your
ideas - most probably by writing an own "handler" (the book also explains
how this is done) - and eventually adopt the underlying Oberon system to
your needs.

Best regards
