Bug: Noncontiguous selection

Post by Matze »

Hello nice people,

when selecting something noncontiguously, it is not possible to deselect a part, When having selected to much it has no effect, when you draw the cursor upon this selected area.

Not only was it very helpfull in NWC to select inverse via this method it makes selecting paragraphs noncontiguously a pain.

Will this be fixed?

Best regards Matze

Gosh Matze I hadn't noticed.

You are quite right it is not possible to deselect.

Like you I'd be grateful if this would be fixed.

If this gives you some help in the mean time, you can select and deselect non-contiguous paragraphs by command-triple-clicking. Or non-contiguous words by command-double-clicking.
