|Summary||0000430: Text selection issues|
|Description||I'm having a hard time selecting text with the mouse. Maybe it's me, maybe not. If you see this as a Feature Request please move it.|
To select some text I have to click and then drag the mouse in any direction.
-> This only works I the mouse cursor is inside a text and not above a hyperlink.
a) If the mouse is above a hyperlink and I press the mouse button the link is immediately opened (this is unusual in other browsers but seems acceptable.)
b) If the mouse cursor is not inside a text at all (eg. at the end / beginning) NetSurf simply won't start selecting anything.
Instead it will start dragging / scrolling the page around.
That way you cannot copy an email address that stands for alone or select a complete text from begin->end or other way round.
You can see it by trying to select the Word "NetSurf" in the upper left corner. I've also attached a very simple example.
Double clicking a word normally selects it up to an including the next space character. This does not work in NetSurf.

|Text selection has been improved with the RISC OS frontend since you reported this issue. Can you try with a current CI build and see if the problem is reproducible?|

|No feedback from reporter, although I am assigning this if its not reproducible please feel free to close as such|

|HTML text selection is a bit dodgy. Won't be touched until the layout engine is rewritten.|
