Temporarily stuck with Notepad, I'd like to know if there is any better or quicker way of selecting from here to the end of the file than moving the mouse to the bottom of the screen and then vigorously from side to side (which is more exercise than I expect to get at a computer).
On Windows, it is simpler.
- Place your cursor where you want to begin selection.
- Go to this line and press Context Menu (right-click-mouse)|Begin/End Selection. Nothing is visually indicated but don't worry, selection start has been set.
- Go to the line in the text where you want your selection to end and again press Context Menu|Begin/End Selection. The text block is now selected and this is visually indicated.
- Do whatever you need with the text block.
