I am using Word 2000 and am struggling to select particular groups of words. It seems that if I select most of a paragraph, then word thinks its doing me a favour by changing my selection to all of the paragraph. Similarly, if I select some of the text in a single table cell, word often highlights the entire cell, or even the entire row! Can I disable this feature?
EDIT: I should have mentioned that I have been viewing the document using the outline view. I have noticed that the behaviour is different in the normal view. The problems appear far less in normal mode, but I prefer to edit using outlines.
EDIT: After some more experimentation, the problem can be boiled down to the following. In outline view mode, I can not highlight any piece of text in a table cell that contains a carriage return without word changing that selection to highlighting the entire row in the table. In any other view mode I can highlight exactly whatever I want.
