I want to select the first verse or two from a paragraph. So I place the mouse very carefully over the verse number, but as soon as I drag on to the second line of the paragraph, the whole paragraph is selected. I would expect to be able to select the first couple of lines without getting the whole paragraph.

I would expect that if I place the mouse in the white space prior to the paragraph and drag down it might select the whole paragraph, but not when I place the mouse over the first letter.

(E.g. trying to select NIV, 2 Sam 7:4-6)

Does this happen if you hold down the 'alt' key while selecting?

If not - and you never want it to behave the way it does - you can turn off 'Smart Text Selection' in preferences/program settings.

Thanks Mike - using the alt-key does the trick!
