Hello,

 

I've noticed an issue using MS Edge regarding the highlighting (or selection?) of text for copying & pasting - using either the mouse or shift+cursor keys - in particular that the browser has a real problem allowing 'reverse' highlighting - i.e. placing the cursor at the end of a portion of text and then trying to highlight the characters/words prior to it. 'Forward' highlighting works much better, but this is a problem I've not seen in IE, Firefox or even Chrome to the best of my knowledge.

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

 

Thanks,

 

Jonathan

@jdseymour1978 Hi!  Thanks for reaching out!  Can you explain the experience a little further?  Does this issue occur on only specific websites?  Is this something you encounter when using MS Edge to view a PDF document?  Does it consistently reproduce or is it an intermittent issue?  

 

If you haven't had a chance yet, can you also please submit diagnostic data through the browser? ("..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback)
