Currently, word selection in editions is based on browser character selection.

TXM is a word based text analysis tool, not character.

For word based hypertext links, selection feedback should be based on word boundaries.

Two possibilites:
  • a) manage a character selection + word selection
    • the user can see/compare/verify his usual character selection
    • depending on context, tools can use a fine character selection or a bigger word selection
  • b) manage only a word selection, two possibilites
Differents events:
  • single left click = word selection
  • double left click -> remove word boundaries character selection (depends on writing system and its implementation)
  • span left selection -> expand to underneath words selection
  • single right click
    • if word selection call command on selected words
    • if no word selected call command on underneath word
      • NOW a) select the word before calling the command
      • LATER b) don't select the word before calling the command
