Can I change a setting or option so that when I move the cursor to the left margin, it allows me to just click to select the entire line of text instead of dragging down to the next line?

I think a triple click does what you want.

triple click marks the whole paragraph :(

Hmm – I need four clicks for the whole paragraph. ;)

Double click to select a word, triple click to select a sentence.

Double click to select a word. Triple click to select a sentence. Quad click to select a paragraph. Shift plus end in order to select from the point of clicking to the end of the line. gravatar ( 2020-05-21 14:57:03 +0100 )edit
