I have a Windows 10 Tablet which I can switch between Desktop Mode or Tablet Mode. Whatever mode it is - it is working with finger navigation - like a mobile app - no mouse or pointing device.

I have a problem with the Text Selection function:

When I open the "DIY Bible Bible Study" on the left screen - I can do any kind of text selection i.e. character, word or smart.  However, when it opens a document on the right-hand side like "Study Like a Pro..." then I cannot select text in any other way that Smart mode - only a word. It won't select text in a sentence for me to highlight.  I did change the text selection settings of the program on any setting character, word & smart, but it makes no difference - it just select one word with all the smart options.

I cannot make out at this stage if it is tab related or document related - but I defiantly know that it works perfect in the "DIY Bible Study" - document in the left tab, while it doesn't work properly in the "Study Like a Pro ..." on the right tab.  There is also no difference if I work in Tablet Mode / Desktop Mode on the tablet.

Do you have any suggestions?

I have an Android tablet and the selection became easier when I turned off the "Automatic word lookup".

It may not help in your case but may be worth trying.

OK - thanks - I will give it a try.

What is just peculiar to me is that it work perfect on the document on the left side, but don't work at all on the document on the right side.
