Ah, right... as there are no spaces between the kanji, they'll end up in 
the same text object. That's a shortcoming of how the current 
implementation works, for scripts that don't use inter-word spaces.

In either case, copy&paste actually gives you the whole text, even 
though AAPro only highlights half of it, I guess?
