There's been a change in how Webstorm selects text in the editor in 6.0.1. Before, with your code open in a window, you could click in the margin and drag to start highlighting text from that point.
Now, text selection seems to be tied to where the cursor it. If you click in the margin, all text between the current location of the cursor and where you clicked is highlighted. (see attached screenshot)
I searched everywhere and can't find a way to turn off this new behavior. I now have to spend time managing where the cursor is in any given file before selecting text.
Does anyone know how to revert back to the easy way of selecting text?
