The edit control will select multiple words that are joined with an underscore such as foo_bar when double clicked. Is it possible to make this selection behavior to work with a dash such as foo-bar? Right now only one of dash separated words is selected.

Hi Craig,

It is possible to select multiple words that are joined with a dash using Splits in the configuration file. I have attached a sample that illustrates this. Let me know if this meets your requirements.

Thank you for your patience.

This didn't work for me. Can you try your solution in conjunctions with the config file and sample text I sent with my bracket matching example?
