Is there an option for turning the text selection "AI" off, or tone it down or something? When selecting text, to highlight something or to copy it, the selection algorithm being used in V6 will automatically select the entire paragraph if I drag from a location in one paragraph and into the next paragraph. That is too "aggressive." I appreciate it selecting whole words (most of the time), but to assume I want the whole paragraph assumes far too much.

I don't see an option in Program Settings for changing this behavior.

Whoops. Take that back. Just found it.  :-)

I know... never satisfied... but I wish there was a "medium" setting on the text selection. Selecting whole words, but not the phrases and paragraphs. That is too much. "Baby bear's is just right."  ;-)

You can also hold the ALT (or Option) key for a temporary override while selecting.
