Oh yes, and I see C-y marks to the end line.
Very useful indeed.

Yes, that's just isearch doing it's highlighty thing, compared to the
actual highlighting.

M-y ought to work for pasting into isearch. C-y does something
weird, like sucking everything to the end of the line into the buffer!

What does M-y do for you at the I-search: prompt?

I've been using it for 7 years now and I still feel like a neophyte!

Thanks! that works!

Is there a keyboard equivalent of center mouse key?

Well, there is a function.
C-h k click2 says:

<mouse-2> at that spot runs the command mouse-insert-selection
which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `mouse-sel'.
(mouse-insert-selection EVENT)

But if I don't press the mouse button
there is no interrupt, and I don't get the
right coordinates.

In any case, Pontus has already converted me
to click1, C-s, C-w, ...
That's easier on my right hand.
