Versions

ConEmu build: 160416 alpha x64
OS version: Windows 7 x64
Used shell version (Far Manager, git-bash, cmd, powershell, cygwin, whatever): "%ProgramFiles%\Git\bin\bash.exe" --login -i

Problem description

Cannot select text without a modifier key. Instead, I need to press either ctrl or shift

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open this menu: Settings > Keys & Macro > Mark/Copy > Select text with mouse (LeftClick+Drag)
  2. Mark "Text selection" checkbox. I can only choose either a modifier key, or (in neither case does modifier-less text selection work). There is no "Always" option, as other issues suggest. Maybe it's gone in Alpha version?
  3. Click Save settings
  4. Try to select text by simply left-clicking then dragging and then lifting mouse button.

Actual results

Nothing gets select on screen.

Expected results

In previous versions it was possible to select text without any modifier. Not sure if any of my options are wrong.
This is a quick glance at my settings: http://www.stenyak.com/sharex/2016-04-25_15-08-32.png
Here's the full config file: ConEmu.zip

Thanks for any help!

Proper path to the binary is %ProgramFiles%\Git\usr\bin\bash.exe. But it's better to run it via git-cmd.exe.

You have set "Move ConEmu window by dragging client area" without modifier.

I thought that was how you remove a hotkey. How do I remove them instead?

FTR setting a random modifier for "Move ConEmu window by dragging client area" fixes the problem, so thank you for the suggestion :)
