That is basically it.
Another example would be if I wanted to change the word "reading"
to "writing". The "read" would need to be changed to "writ", but
the "ing" would remain.
I would start the cursor at the "r" in "reading", drag up to
the "d", and stop. However, Windows will ASSUME that I want the
whole word, and automatically jump the highlight ahead to include
the "ing" too. :(
Doing it backward doesn't help. If I start at the "d", drag
the cursor left to the "r", and stop, it will still ASSUME
I want the whole word, and add in the "ing" too. :(
No matter what I do, Windows will always insist on including the
"ing" unless I insert a blank space first, making it "read ing".
However, a quick test seems to indicate that your DOS work-around
trick doesn't assume, or add, the "ing". THANKS!!!!
I was hoping that there was some sort of Registry key like
"cursor_highlight_stupid_assumptions" that I could sent to "off"
