I have an MP120 with NOS v1.3 and if I recall, it had the highlight, drag to edge of screen, release to cut, copy, drag off edge to paste features. Although it did not have the ability to use a "Cut, Copy & Paste" utility like the nice Hilite2000 offered.

If anyone wishes, I could break out my V1.3 120 (in storage), load some batteries and verify this.
