I don’t see this listed anywhere but it’s something that’s bothered a lot.
When I go to paste a block of text into the editor, it’s auto-selecting the word where I put the cursor and then over-writing the word with the text I’m pasting in. I don’t see anywhere in the setup to change that but when I copy and paste, I don’t want anything auto-selecting things. That’s a pet peeve of mine.
If I use ctl-V to paste the text in, it’s usually OK. The auto-select seems to happen when I right-click to pull up the menu to cut/paste.
I can only reproduce this when I right click and select ‘Paste Style’ i.e. if the cursor is between words a word is highlighted. I can’t reproduce for standard cut and paste via menu, shortcut key or right-click?
And, yeah, it’s only doing it in certain situations with the right-click. If I use ctl-v or the pull down menu to paste in, it’s fine. But if I put the cursor at any point touching a word, the word gets automatically selected if I use the right-click menu. It doesn’t have to be on a paste. If I just right click and the cursor is in or beside a word, it selects the word. UNLESS, the cursor is between a word and a punctuation mark, in which case it will select the punctuation mark. If the cursor is at the end of a paragraph that ends with a period, then it’s fine. If it’s between a period and the first word of the next sentence in the paragraph between two spaces, it goes back and selects the period.
