[BUG] Shift-click doesn't readjust selection area

[BUG] Shift-click doesn't readjust selection area

Postby asmodai on Tue May 25, 2010 1:25 pm

Using 20100501.

Correct me if wrong, but I think it used to work like this. It is the default way of operating in many Windows applications at least.

You have a piece of text, you hold shift and click (with the left mouse button) to where you want to extend the selection. You now have a selection. Now you should be able to shift-click elsewhere to extend. That works. Now to reduce the selection shift-click inside the already selected text, this does NOT reduce the selection area as it does in many other applications.

Looks like a bug to me too.

Looks like a bug, but how should it behave when you have multiple selections?

BTW, did you try alt+click? It will unselect text.

Haven't tried that alt click, interesting, allows for multiple selection areas that way.
