WDSc highlighting just keeps going and going and going . . .

WDSc: When a section of code is selected by dragging a mouse over the code, it is highlighted. Later, if one wants to select another portion of code with the mouse, everything between the current mouse pointer and the prior selection is selected. Is there a way to cause each mouse-based selection of code to start fresh like is does in a Word document? This is very frustrating. The only way I've found to un-select the selection is via Alt+U. There must be a way to start a new selection without WDSc adding it to the prior selection.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I haven’t seen this behavior. I have on occasion had highlighting issues, but usually an click clears it. The are a few option on selection under Preferences/Lpex Editor, but I don’t see one that addresses this exactly. What version of WDSc are you on ? There have been a lot of these types of fixes.

    We are running Version 7.0.0. I've tried clicking in a different area of the code and find that highlighting is linked in some manner to the originally highlighted text. Later . . . I was just now doing a little highlighting, looking for a good way to describe the behabior. Guess what! Discovered that double clicking in the new area starts a new highlighting selection without including the prior selection. Looks like double clicking breaks the link. Thank you for your reponse.
