In the past, when I composed a message, I could ‘select’ a word or two or more in the body of my post (then bold them, underline them, delete them, create a link, etc). I would do this putting my cursor next to the first word I wanted to highlight, then dragging it across to the last letter of the last word I wanted to highlight. Alternatively, I could use shift+option+arrow to accomplish the same thing. Or I could double click on a word, which would select it & if I kept clicking it would select multiple words, then the whole sentence, then the whole paragraph, etc.
But I can no longer do that. Nothing happens when I use any of the methods that used to work to highlight text. So if I want to delete a sentence (e.g.), I have to place my cursor at the end of that sentence, then hit the delete key until the sentence is all gone. I use a macbook pro, but I don’t think it’s my computer because I can still highlight text in outlook, word, on facebook, etc.
So if this even makes sense to anyone…why can I no longer highlight text when posting on the sdmb?
