Q63059: PWB Text Highlight with Mouse Acts Strange After Search
Article: Q63059 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 15-AUG-1990 The click-and-drag method of selecting text with the mouse in the Programmer's Workbench (PWB) sometimes works incorrectly when used after a search function. To reproduce this problem, do the following: 1. Select a word in the text using the mouse (double-click on a single word). 2. Execute the search function (select the Search menu, choose Find, then OK). 3. Now try to highlight the text a few lines below the word you used to search on (using the click-and-drag method). The text will be highlighted starting at the original word that was searched for, rather than at the starting mouse position. To work around this problem, click the left button anywhere in the text window, then perform the text highlight. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with the Programmer's Workbench version 1.00. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
