CTRL + double click -> select quoted text

Post by Dave Rabelink » 10 Jul 2018, 13:06

Maybe this "hidden" feature is already known by most developers...

Just to promote this handy feature which was introduced in TD 6.1 and is available in all following TD versions:

When holding CTRL key and double click on a string literal, TD will select the quoted tekst without the quotes.
(so selects the actual tekst within the quotes).

I find it very handy and improves the performance of quickly copy/paste or replace texts.

Didn't knew about it and double click was driving me crazy for selecting the quotes also.
Very nice tip.

Thanks Dave
