  • Feature Expand Wordwise Selection to Enable Double-Click + Drag

    Especially with the Highlight-Text-tool I think it would be practical to enable wordwise text selection, like it works in a browser. That is: Double click a word, but don't release the 2nd click (word under cursor is selected); drag the mouse to select more text, but both the selection-range's start- and endpoint are expanded to include the word they are located in.

    Just try it right here in your browser, or compare this selection range sketch ("[" and"]" are mousedown/mouseup locations, "(" and ")" is the resulting selection):

    ..... .. ...([.. .. ......... .. ...... ..])..... .... ......... (single click to start selection)
    ..... .. (...[.. .. ......... .. ...... ..].....) .... ......... (double click to start selection)

    Hope this gets accepted, certainly would make my life a little easier.


    Cheers,
    Peter
