Description thelastmammoth 2012-02-12 01:59:37 UTC
when double clicking on identifier my_variable, it either selects my or _ or variable. It should select my_variable, as it is a valid C++ identifier. 

If you don't want "_" to be part of a word by default, can we at least have a way to set word delimiters (on a per file type basis if necessary)? That should be a very basic feature, available in many editors.

Could you run NB with clean userdir and do not import settings from old version. It should help.
Comment 2 Miloslav Metelka 2012-06-06 12:51:10 UTC
Reassigning since imho this is cnd related.
Comment 3 nnnnnk 2012-06-26 11:32:02 UTC
I can not reproduce this.

I have variables separated with hyphens and I would like to select them entirely by double-clicking on them.

I just can't find how to set that up...

I know you can with Sublime Text :

It works for CSS but I'm using SCSS. Class names, variables and CSS attributes are not selected properly on double click.

.navigation-container{   //not properly selected
 #{$nav-middle}{ //not properly selected
      > ul ul{
           align-content: center; //not properly selected
