When I select sentences to highlight, I usually want to include the punctuation. However, in the last few days, it has become impossible to select trailing periods on the far right side of the screen. See image below:

I can't replicate this - I can include full stops in selections for highlighting.

I am checking this on Mac, which platform are you running on?

It is not possible to select a word with punctuation on the very end of the line. But I can select it and the following word(s) as expected.

This calls for a manual workaround, unfortunately.


Windows 10 & Android 8

I am using Windows with Selection Mode set to "Word". (I know that Character selection mode is a workaround, however, Word selection usually allows you to decide to select or not select punctuation).

Also, I just realized that I am only having the issue with personal books. It works as expected with Logos resources. That's why I only recently noticed the problem, because I only recently was reading a personal book. So the problem seems to be restricted to personal books, which is strange since I can't imagine what would be coded differently between them.

Before this loses everyone's attention, would someone mind confirming that this is an issue for personal books?
