    "Selecting text" anywhere on my computer software. Only selects the whole line of text with...


    Hi, I am having trouble selecting text word-by-word. I can only select whole lines or paragraphs by ONLY clicking three times. I have no choice and this makes it difficult editing work like placing BOLD on certain words or underlining or cut and paste sentinces. Windows10Microsoft surface pro 6. Please help. I am not a software geek so please explain in terms that will be understandable to a more practical minded rather technical minded. I have seen this question written previously but the answer I couldn't understand. thank you for your time.

    :)

    vb.net select text from active cursor point in different window

    hello all - working on a dictation application and looking for some guidance as far as selecting text from a cursor point in a window outside of the applications form. I'll clarify a bit: The application types at the current cursor point using sendkeys() as you speak.. and I'm trying to handle commands such as "select word" which should select the word to the right of the current cursor point. I know how to handle selecting text within an application, but am looking to be pointed in the right direction for information on selecting text from say microsoft word etc. but keep in mind the goal for the application is to be universal for use within any EMR, word processor, web browser etc.

    Thanks for any assistance!

  3. Fuzzy display that goes away if text is selected or refreshed

    Hello,
    I have a strange issue, this started about a week ago after Creators' update. I have the system to auto-update all software and features from Microsoft. All drivers are up to date. I have manually installed the latest display driver for this laptop.
    Issue:
    • When I have many windows open, the display crumbles only in selected parts of the screen as shown in the attached picture.
    • This flickering doesn't happen in safe mode (with networking).
    • Doesn't happen with a live USB linux session either.
    • This is reversed upon selecting the text (for example in a webpage or a word processor document).

    System specs: Windows 10, founders update. Intel 4 series express chipset (Centrino processor) with 5gb of ram running windows 10 creators update.

    "Selecting text" anywhere on my computer software. Only selects the whole line of text with... [​IMG]

    Solutions tried so far with no success:
    • Text scaling and DPI scaling,
    • installing various drivers including Windows 7 drivers for this display,
    • Going to safe mode, uninstalling the driver and deleting it and restarting,
    • uninstalling most of the programs and features (except MS office and a few other essentials)
    Can anybody help please?
    thanks and best regards

    List of tooltip texts

    • Do not translate the IDS_ strings, only what's inside the "s
    • \n is a newline character that acts like "return" is pressed. so text\n\ntext2 adds a blank line between "text" and "text2"
    • %s is replaced by some inserted text, you may move the %s to other positions within the text, but if multiple %s are present they will be inserted in the same order in all languages
