    I would like to be able to select non-continuous text by holding ctrl and draging the cursor or double clicking text

    That isn’t very easy, but I will consider that. What do you want to do by double-clicking the text?


    1)the requested highlight behaviour is this:

    first you highlight some text
    then you click ctrl and hold it clicked
    then you highlight some other text (text that doesnt continue from the firstly selected text)

    at this time in EmEditor afaik, we can only select continuing text

    for example in the text “hello how are you”, we cant select/highlight the words “hello” and “are” at the same time, we can only select “hello how” or “hello how are”

    2)another function that would be useful is this:

    in current EmEditor, when you click on a line number (in the line numbers column at left) the whole line is highlighted

    but we cannot highlight lines that are not continuous, eg we cannot highlight line 2 and line 4, we can only highlight line 2 and 3

    so it would be nice, by pressing ctrl and clicking on line numbers, to be able to select multiple non continuous lines

    3)as for double clicking, this behaviour is convenient:

    when you double click on a word, emeditor should highlight this word, one more click should highlight the whole sentence, and one more click should highlight the whole paragraph

    at the moment, EmEditor doesnt do anything after third or fourth click

    I understand your requests. Thanks for your opinions.
