Suggestion: select word under cursor
« on: October 26, 2009, 01:12:18 am »
Visual Studio has this neat feature (Ctrl-W or Ctrl-Shift-W) which selects the word under cursor (no matter where cursor is - even if in the middle of the word, the whole word to the left and right from cursor will be selected).

Expand selection it is. Just one thing: if the cursor is at the start of the word, which is at the start of the line, it selects the whole line, not the word. I think it should select word, then line.

Yes. This is a bug. Would be fixed in new beta.
Just checked with latest beta and see that bug you mentioned is not exist any more.
Probably from version 733, where I have done fixes for selection of the paragraph.

Here you can find details and link t download.

Best regards,
Alex.

Yes, this is reasonable and easy to implement.
Will be added in new 1.48 beta.
