document.execCommand('cut') doesn't work on text area's
Project Member Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org, Apr 14 2015
Version: 44.0.2367.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit) OS: OS X What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Visit http://jsbin.com/taliso/45/edit 2. Select some text in the textarea 3. Click the cut text area button What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The page should cut the text from the text area. Instead nothing happens. I get the cut command to work if I programmatically call select on the text area, but I can't get this to work for manual selection. If this a bug in the platform, my implementation or simply a feature which isn't supported by the API? Please use labels and text to provide additional information.

yosin@, any idea why this would work for programmatic selections but not manual ones?
