With smart selection, you no longer need to drag the mouse when highlighting common patterns (listed below).

What is it

Double-click selection typically highlights an individual word; semantic selection, however, extends the definition of a word so that it's not delimited by whitespace or some punctuation marks. This enables easily selecting URLs, IP addresses, etc.

How to access it

Double-click on some text in the app. The following patterns are recognized:

  1. URLs

  2. File paths

  3. Email addresses

  4. IP addresses

  5. Floating point numbers, including scientific notation.

You can toggle smart selection on the Settings > Features > Terminal page.

If disabled, you can instead manually select specific punctuation characters to be included within word boundaries.
