How To Select a Line using the Mouse?

This may seem trivial but how do I select a line with the mouse?

Old habits die hard and the one thing I do the most in Eclipse and also XCode is triple-click to select a line, which I then either cut or copy and paste.

In AppCode, triple-click doesn't work, nor does there seem to be a way to define a mouse shortcut for triple click.

Double click is obviously already used for various things; keyboard shortcuts are OK I suppose but I just keep triple-clicking...

Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Hello nikolaus,

Triple-click used to work; now it doesn't work because of a bug:
http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-74074
In the current version you can click and drag a little in the gutter. Also
note that many actions (Cut/Copy for instance) work on the current line by
default, even if it's not explicitly selected.

Seems to be a bug. The line is selected after 4th click only. Bug submitted: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-74653

Also, be informed some line operations work without line selection, e.g. copy/cut/delete or move line work for current line automaticaly.

Oh, thanks.

I can certainly deal with using 4x-click for now, thanks!

I see... didn't know that about cut/copy/paste ... that's actually pretty cool.

Thanks for both of your replies!
