Ctrl+click+drag is not fixed: it still selects by characters if any selection is present.

Some users still want to be able to make multiple selections by using CTRL + click + drag, therefore, this is a combination of both good features. If you CTRL + Click + drag, it will select by character. However, if you CTRL + Click (No drag), it will select by words.
