I’m running Windows XP Pro. I’d love to be able to turn off all “smart” highlighting - for example, when the highlight “helpfully” jumps to the end of the word when you’ve placed the cursor on its second letter. On balance, this “feature” is a huge nuisance and the ability to kill it would be wonderful.
I note that this does not work the same way in every application. Am I at the mercy of each app’s designer, or is there some way to exterminate this pest once and for all?
