    Text selection followed by right cursor - changed behaviour in 1809


    We've got a preview build of 1809 running on a test machine, some macros are failing because of a change of behaviour in text editing. All our existing machines exhibit this behaviour -

    Text Selection (selection is indicated in red)

    Now press the right cursor key

    The cursor is now flashing on the character to the right of the selection - between the c and t

    Text Selec tion

    Now in our preview machines (we've got two of them) the cursor moves to the immediate right of the selection, between the e and c

    Text Sele ction

    Do you follow? It may seem trivial but it's breaking some of our macros - and will do the same for our customers' macros too.

    Is there a registry setting that control this behaviour?

    Thanks for looking!

    :)

    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!

    Text selection is one character to the right of the cursor location

    The location of my cursor on screen doesn't line up with the location in text where the cursor is inserted. The actual insertion point is about one character to the right of the location of the cursor. For example if I click between the c and u in "cursor"
    and drag to the right, I end up selecting only "rsor."

    Just started happening today. Not aware any major changes to my system. Restarting does not resolve. I've tested in Word, Word Pad, web pages, and Excel. The behavior is consistent.

    My system is Windows 10 on a dell 7000 series inspiron with external monitors and a wireless Microsoft Comfort 5050 mouse and keyboard.
