How to CTRL+Left Click?

This is such a simple/dumb question, probably with the most simple answer to it, but it’s driving me crazy and I can’t find an answer online. I can’t CTRL+Left Click select different text as I usually do in other word-processing programs. Shift+Left Click works fine but it is not exactly ideal for what I need, which is to select different lines or paragraphs of text at once and cut them into a different page. It’s basic stuff, and I can’t figure out why it’s not possible here. I’ve tried looking in the Keyboard Options but I’m not sure what the shortcut is called exactly.
