Smart-Select

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

How to access it

Double-click on some text in the app. The following patterns are recognized:
  1. 1.
    URLs
  2. 2.
    File paths
  3. 3.
    Email addresses
  4. 4.
    IP addresses
  5. 5.
    Floating point numbers, including scientific notation.
You can enable and disable this feature in the Settings > Features page.
If disabled, you can instead manually select specfic punctuation characters to be included within word boundaries.
