Thanks for the hard work narrowing this down.  This gives me a good starting point as to what code to review.
Won't you be looking for a needle in a haystack?  I wonder whether you could send a debug build to the guy who can reproduce it easily, that had some kind of back tracking built into it so when a selection disappears when it shouldn't, you can capture some data that might tell you the cause.  Or maybe he could ship his computer to you...

If the Current Context toolbar is truly the problem, then it's more of a needle in a small square bale.

I see this behavior, too, and I did a screen recording (attached).

I had the search mini window open with a search keyword matching the current line (yellow marking). Then I edited the comment above the matching line and then marked the line below the comment. As as a result, the line unselects itself. After pressing undo the selection within the comment unselects itself, too.

If I close the search mini window, the unselect is not happening.

Emulation: CUA
OS Version: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

Language: . (Bourne Shell)

Kind regards

I can definitely reproduce the issue where text is deselected when Mini-Find is active and highlighting matches.  I will file a defect and investigate.  I can't verify if it is the same issue for other reports in this thread, but could be related.

Still happens in V23 Beta 3.
Is there some extra debugging we can do during beta to track this down?

A fix was checked in to handle the case with Mini-Find highlighting removing selections.  That was the only reproducible case we had at the time.  We'll need to start over, do you think it is related to Mini-Find or Tool Find or is searching not even related to what you are seeing?

Not related to mini find as I don't use that, nor do I use the find tool bar.

I have strange selection behavior in 2018 Beta 3, too.

If I select a region with the mouse and switch to another window (e.g. terminal), the selection changes to something completely different.

Please see screen recording attached.

I can't seem to reproduce this. However, I can't tell what you're clicking on. I tried clicking on a Terminal window like you say in your explanation. Does this reproduce for you with a default config (vs +new -sc /tmp/newconfigdir).

Yes, it is reproducible with a fresh VS 2018 Beta 3 configuration.
It does not matter what I'm clicking (e.g. desktop, terminal, browser, etc.) as long I click on the right side of my VS window. It does not happen if I click on the left side of SlickEdit.
The Problem is not reproducible if I turn off the minimap.

Are you clicking in the minimap window or to the right of the minimap window (shell window frame)?

No, I'm clicking on the desktop or into a terminal on the right, outside of the SE window.

Got it to happen now. Not sure why it wouldn't repro before.
