#627 new enhancement

Selecting text at beginning of line auto-selects timestamp/previous line

Reported by: Owned by:
Milestone: Good ideas for later Component: Adium Core
Version: Severity: minor
Keywords: text message limit handle Cc:
Patch Status:


When double-clicking the first word of a message, or when dragging to select a whole line and the cursor reaches the first word, Adium auto-selects part of the timestamp at the beginning of the line. If there is a previous message from the same sender, Adium also auto-selects the previous line. This makes selecting text for copy-pasting more difficult than it should be.

Tested using the "Eclipse" message style.

To reproduce, double-click the first word of any message, and the timestamp (and previous line, if there is one from the same sender) will partially select.

This is message style specific, but I'm not aware of a way to control selection within a webkit view.

Does this happen in any other message styles?

I've updated my copy of the message style, even restarted adium, but there still seems to be a problem when selecting the first word from a block of multiple messages from the same user.
