What happened to highlighting full paragraphs when you double click on a piece of text?

Posted

When ever I double click I cannot highlight the entire text for some strange reason. And this happened all of a sudden. Because I was having no trouble about a few days ago but all of a sudden now when I double click on one word it only highlights that one word not the entire sentence or paragraph??

I'm going to lock this thread to keep the conversation in one thread because you have another (earlier) thread about this triple-click subject.
