[TxMt] Text selection

Hi Allan,

When I double-click on a PHP variable name it selects the whole word 
(without the preceding $) as expected. Because I want to select the 
whole thing I automatically do a Shift-Left Arrow to add the $ but 
something strange happens and I get about half the word selected 
without the $. Any chance of fixing this?

My expected behaviour is whichever arrow key (left or right) you first 
start using after selecting the text should allow you to expand or 
contract the selection at the appropriate end.

Also a suggestion (which BBEdit supports) is that a second shift double 
click on a different word should select everything between and 
including the two words.

Thanks for your time,
