Select Text From Anywhere Within Text Box
Say I want to select some text. If I click and drag within a text box, Illustrator assumes that I want to create an additional text box. To select the text I want, I need to position my pointer exactly next to the text.
Can the 'selected' area be expanded to within the entire text box?
I agree, happens all the time, the cursor must be placed inside of em-box to be able to select. And when you have 120% leading by default, you get this tiny strip of 'false trigger' area, you really wouldn’t need to create new area type object. If you increase leading, you would get even more of this space. I wonder if anyone creates new text overlapping the old?
