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. 1.
  2. 2.
    File paths
  3. 3.
    Email addresses
  4. 4.
    IP addresses
  5. 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.
