BUG: Text selection unreliable

AxehiltAxehilt Member Posts: 10,373 Rare

It seems like around the time spellchecker was added, text selection became a huge hassle with this editor.  I'll drag-select a chunk of text I want to delete and about a second later it will change the selection I've made.

Happens with keyboard selection too.  Like sometimes when I SHIFT+CTRL+LEFTARROW a bunch of times to select words, it will spontaneously change where the start of the selection is.

Makes the editor feel pretty unreliable and erratic.

    I feel better now that I know others are having this problem and that it's not just my browser or mouse flaking out on me. :)

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Bumping, as this still occurs in every post I make.

    Is there a workaround, like maybe a way to opt out of the spellchecker loading into the editor (if that's the cause)?

    Thanks Mike.  I have this problem also.  It has been present approximately a couple of weeks now.
    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.
