Does anyone know why when I hold down my ctrl key and left click with the mouse that it won't highlight text like it used to? It highlights some parts or will move text around and create a mess, or sometimes will highlight the entire document. I do medical transcription and I have to do this a lot. Right now I'm highlighting one sentence at a time because of this. Any suggestions?

Why do you have to use the ctrl key. Just left click and highlight then you can control just what you want to highlight.

You can also highlight text by left clicking three times quickly. Don't know why the Ctrl-left click stopped working.
