"Arrow keys traverse selection" not working?
« on: March 19, 2021, 02:19:19 pm »
Tools > Options > Editing > Selections > Arrow keys traverse selection: "If checked, the Left arrow key moves the cursor to the beginning of the selection and the Right arrow key moves the cursor to the end of the selection". This does not appear to be working: if I have some text selected, regardless of setting, pressing an arrow key simply moves the cursor one character to the left or right. What am I doing wrong?

Reproduced. Doesn’t work in the most important case. Shift+right several times then cursor left does nothing other than deselect.
