Mouse is selecting the text by itself

Hi!

A annoying behavior happens when I click the editor at some character and just moves the pointer around, this makes a selection of the text. 

The expected behavior to select a text should be by pressing the left btn with the mouse and moving it around, but in my problem I don' t need to press it, it selects the text just by clicking and moving around. This only happens in pycharm, I already unplugged my mouse and nothing changed.

Any help?

Hello, 

 

What OS are you running? 

Could you please also attach your logs folder zipped from Help | Compress Logs and Show in…  and upload it to the FTP: https://uploads.services.jetbrains.com/  , please provide me with a folder name. 

 

Thank you!

Hi!

It is a ubuntu 19. I rebooted the machine the next morning and everything was normal again. Probably I pressed some random keys cleaning the keyboard during initialization and made it behave like that.

The next time it happens again I will get the logs and send them to the ftp. Thanks for replying!

Felipe.

Hi, it happens the same to me.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04, and I uploaded my logs folder zipped, the folder name is pycharm-logs-20191209-111128.zip (109 kb)

Thank you in advance,

ana

What is your desktop environment?

Would it be possible to provide a screencast demonstrating the issue?
