Is it possible to start a text selection, jump to another page without moving the caret, and then end the selection range with shift-click?
If I use the navigation pane, or the "Go to" command, the caret moves, and my contiguous text selection is cancelled.
Dragging the vertical scroll-bar, or using the scroll wheel will move the view-port without moving the caret, but these methods are slower and more tedious.
I tried another way with Ctrl + F Find:
- I copied some text from the end of my text range.
- In the navigation pane, I heading-jumped to the beginning of my text selection.
- Then, I used Ctrl + F Find with the copied text to try to go back to the text selection end.
- This doesn’t work in Word, as the caret still moves.
On the other hand, Find and replace Ctrl + H does not break the text selection in Google Docs.
