Two clicks select a word. (The first click is to locate the cursor, I guess, the second one selects the word). Three clicks selects a paragraph.
But what if I want to select a sentence, as I often do? I’ve looked in the manual for a key+mouseclick combination but can’t find it. Is there any way to select a sentence?
Unfortunately the ability to select ranges of text by sentences is not addressed by the text engine itself, so we do not have anything to hook into with a keyboard shortcut. I do agree it would be nice to have though. I’m used to editing in Vim, which has a handy set of keyboard shortcuts for jumping from one sentence to the next (or in reverse). It is something I miss with general Mac-based text editors.
