A problem in selecting a single or part of word in unicode (UTF-8) file


#1

I would like to ask if you can help me to find out why when I move the cursor to select a single or part of word in my unicode file , the selection includes the full phrase or the full araw.

I am working specifically on Arabic text, is this a common problem with other languages using the unicode UTF-8 format.
Any comment or suggestions are appreciated.
Many thanks

Thanks for your reply, yes of course, this is an example. As can be seen here I could not select a single word or letter from the Arabic script.

This is strange.
I wonder if others have this issue.
What happens if you change to UTF16 encoding?
