Multiword selection not working #217
For what it's worth, both Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader behave the same way in this regard (dragging after double-clicking is ignored, and only one word is selected).
I say this just for informational purposes; I don't have a strong opinion either way (nor am I in a position to make the call).
Double click in Microsoft editors such as notepad and write do allow for drag
Double click in Microsoft viewers such XPS viewer does not (no word selection= no & drag)
Double click PDF in
@kjk I suggest this is closed as behaviour is functioning as expected, thus not an issue
@bhajneet changing such behaviours is not trivial since it may hav to be changed for each different format interface thus the easiest way for a user to modify system behaviour is to "hook" the key or mouse actions and "remap" them to the users preference which will obviously differ from his neighbours taste thus you will constantly see disagreement as to what even the space key " S H O U L D " do ! the best solutions I know of are x-mouse ( https://www.highrez.co.uk ) and AutoHotKey (https://www.autohotkey.com/) but of course there are others.
