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