Emacs 'set mark'

Is there anything I can do with Idea to get the same behaviour as the set-mark command with emacs. I want to be able to have the kind of flexibility when selecting text that emacs gives me, which lets me navigate normally while selecting all the text between my cursor and the orginal set-mark position. Using the arrow keys is just not as efficient.

Thanks for any help...


Try the IDEAmacs plugin. It contains the basic functionality for this. If you want any more, let me know. Right now it does everything I need from it so there's no huge incentive to add more.
