And a follow-up: the dialogue boxes of the new installer are an
enormous improvement over those of previous generations; one can
consistently select / overtype / confirm / etc, whereas before
interactions appeared to be almost random in the effect that they had or
did not have. So thank you very much for this. I can now carry out a
TeX Live 2019 (pre-test) installation/configuration without having to
worry as to whether my click-at-end / drag-to-start / over-type had or
had not had the desired effect, or whether I needed to ensure that the
insertion point was at the end before I could reliably click "[OK]"
rather than having to use one or more <return>s.
