So I will explain:
As a writer/editor who works with large documents, I find it helpful to
be able to drag selected text to a new location when restructuring a
document. When one is editing a very large document, it's faster to work
with the mouse alone rather than switch between using keystrokes and the
mouse.

WordPad in Win95 has this feature. The large (read bloated)
word-processors have this feature. I am looking for a small Win3.x
editor that has this feature.
