The other professional editors have a capability to select text inside delimiters as parenthesis, brackets, double quotes, backticks (acute), etc using an easy keyboard binding as say Ctrl-Shift M in Sublime, vi( in VI/NVim, but sadly this is not possible in EmEditor.
This feature would greatly improve productivity.May 25, 2021 at 9:30 am #27488Yutaka EmuraKeymaster
While the cursor is at either one of parentheses/brackets, pressing CTRL+SHIFT+] will select all contents in the parentheses/brackets. I will consider allowing this command to work while the cursor is at anywhere in the parentheses/brackets in future versions.
As for double quotes, there are no keyboard shortcuts, but you can select the contents inside the double quotes with a click of the mouse. To do this, go to Customize on the Tools menu, select the Active String page, select String enclosed by double quotation marks from the Type list, select Left Clicked from the Event list, and set the Select String before Action check box. Also, please go to Configuration Properties, Highlight (2) page, and ensure the Double Quotation Marks check box is set.May 25, 2021 at 4:21 pm #27493Yutaka EmuraKeymaster
v20.8 beta 6 (20.7.906) enabled the Find Matching Parenthesis/Bracket (Ctrl+]) and Matching Parenthesis/Bracket Extend (Ctrl+Shift+]) even if the cursor is not exactly at the parenthesis/bracket position. The Highlight Matching Brackets option will always highlight the most inner parentheses/brackets including the cursor position.May 25, 2021 at 8:33 pm #27494ArthurZParticipant

Some editor highlights the current pair even when the cursor is not touching the pair.
How about adding such an option?
