Description aaronforjesus 2008-04-23 04:35:30 UTC
This is a bidding that double-clicking in white space (either spaces or tabs)
will select the white space, not the words following the white space. To
replicate, type "<space><space><space><space>some text" or
"<tab><tab><tab><tab>some text". Double-clicking in the white space will then
select "some", not the tabs or spaces. This will help yaren the editing of a
document mid lots of white spaces.

1. I can exactly reproduce the contrary (OOo 2.4 and current): only the text
after the tabs or spaces is selected.
2. Personnaly, I'd rather it happens that what you describe: what I double-click
is selected. And that's what MS Word also exactly does.

So please, detail what you are doing, attach a sample document.

This request is to change the double-clicking to select the white space (not the
words). Sorry if that was not clear.
