Tiny (but annoying) Editor Bug

ss052111
I've encountered a bug in the Toad editor that drives me nuts, and I was wondering if others have noticed it, or at least can replicate the behavior.

I generally avoid mouse use as much as possible. I frequently will select text in the editor by holding down the [Shift] key, and then using the arrow and/or [Page Up]/[Page Down] keys. Sometimes, Toad does not select any text on the first press of one of those keys. It begins selecting the text on all subsequent pressing of those keys.

One way that I know I can replicate the behavior is following these steps:

1) Open a SQL editor window
2) Type "SELECT *", and then hit [Enter]
3) Type "FROM TABLE_NAME", and then hit [Enter]
4) Type "WHERE TABLE_ID = 1"
5) Hold down the [Shift] key, and then hit the Up Arrow twice

When I follow these steps, the editor selects text the second time I hit the Up Arrow, but not the first time.

Thanks for listening to my complaining!
Sean

If you zip your User Files folder and email it to me offline I'll try your settings.

Will do.

And for anyone else who cares, I should have mentioned that I use Toad on two different machines. One has version 11.5.0.56 running on Windows XP, while the other has version 11.0.0.116 running on Windows 7.  I've experienced this behavior in previous Toad major versions as well, but can't recall specifics.

Thanks for send me the files.

For any following this thread the problem is caused by capitalization effects set in the Editor's syntax highlighting options. With that option set to anything other than unchanged this issue is evident. I'll take a peek at it.
