Text Selection/Highlighting

Holding down the "Shift" key while cursoring with the arrows highlights the text the cursor passes showing that the highlighted text is selected for edit.  Holding down the CTRL and the "Shift" key while using the left or right cursor arrows highlights one complete word at a time for editing, moving to the beginning of the previous/next word.  If the "Shift" key is held down while double-clicking on a word, all occurrences of that word in the active document will be selected.

 

Holding down the CTRL and the "Shift" key while using the up or down cursor arrows highlights all text between the starting and ending position of the cursor.  Holding down the CTRL and the "Shift" key while using the "Home" key will highlight all text from the beginning cursor position to the beginning of the document being edited.

 

Holding down the CTRL and the "Shift" key while using the "End" key will highlight all text from the beginning cursor position to the end of the document being edited.  When the "Shift" Key is pressed at the same time as performing the following functions the current selection (if present), or a new selection will be extended to select text up to the cursor position following the command:

 

Find Next/Previous

Goto

Goto Bookmark

 

The "Shift" key should be pressed at the time the action for command takes place, not on the command that shows the dialog. For example, if Ctrl+G displays the Goto Dialog and OK is clicked to perform the Goto, the "Shift" Key is pressed when the OK is clicked, NOT when the Ctrl+G is pressed to display the dialog.
