When I double-click on a word, the cursor just moves to the end of the word without marking it (so I can't use "Concordance"). The combination "Click + Shift and arrow" does not mark text either. I started experiencing this problem after installing a trial Studio 2017. Since then I have uninstalled Studio 2017 and re-installed Studio 2015 but the problem is still there. Any ideas?

Not sure but... Aug 7, 2017

I haven't experienced this myself, I'm currently using Studio 2017 SR1 without any major issues, but if this is happening only in Studio, I would suggest running a repair. It's quick and it can solve some unusual issues.

How do I run a repair? Aug 7, 2017

Thanks. How do I run a repair? I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Studio several times but the problem remains. I've found out that double-clicking selects the text but without highlighting it. When I double-click in Studio 2015 on my backup computer for example, the background of the selected text becomes black. Nothing of the kind happens on the computer on which I installed the trial version of Studio 2017. The background remains unchanged.

Control Panel Aug 7, 2017

If you go to the Windows Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs, then go down the list and select Studio, you should see the Repair option next to the Uninstall option.

Hope that helps!
