1) When quoted string spans few lines EmEditor shows “hand” (link) cursor only over the last line of quoted text.
2) When double-clicked only the text of last line is selected, not the whole quoted text.
*.txt files configuration:
Higlight (2) tab:
Single quotation marks = Yes
Double quotation marks = Yes
Continue to next line = Yes
Clicking in quotes selects the whole string = Yes.
Copy to EmEditor & double-click the text in quotes (preserve my linebreaks):
“Has this fellow no feeling of his business, that he
sings at grave-making?”
