Very often, when I just want to select and edit text in the key/value params editor, I overshoot the edge of the box containing the value I’m trying to select and my selection turns into a dashed selection box that is not helpful to me. How do I disable this odd selection box feature so that I can more easily edit my keys and values?
- Enter a key and value in the Params editor
- Use the mouse to try and select just the the first half of the parameter value
- Notice that if your cursor exits the value box at all, you lose the text selection
If you begin selecting text, it should not be necessary to precisely aim the mouse at the end position if the end is against the edge of a cell. See for example Notepad, GEdit, Microsoft Excel, the text editor I’m typing in right now, all standard text inputs on any website, terminal emulators, …
A related point, if you try and select text by clicking & holding on text before the blinking text cursor is in the box, the editor thinks you’re trying to drag the entire value somewhere else. Again, this is cumbersome when all you want to do is edit a value.
