Copies text, tags, and pixbufs between start and end (the order of start and end doesn’t matter) and inserts the copy at iter. Used instead of simply getting/inserting text because it preserves images and tags. If start and end are in a different buffer from buffer, the two buffers must share the same tag table.

Implemented via emissions of the insert_text and apply_tag signals, so expect those.

class TextBuffer


iter TextIter

a position in buffer

start TextIter

a position in a gtk.TextBuffer

end TextIter

another position in the same buffer as start
