  2. Cursor jumps while highlighting text and inserting text.

    While I'm typing in an email my cursor will jump while inserting text in the email. What can I do to prevent this from happening?

    Also, when I go to highlight an area, it jumps around and highlights the entire text, not just the area I wanted highlighted. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    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!
