Expand selection inside an objective-c string skips selecting the string without the quotes


Evaluating Appcode 2018.2 running with  Xcode 10.1. Yes I know 10.1 is ancient. I am maintaining code downstream and have no control.

In swift code you can press option-up multiple times to select everything INSIDE the quotes. In obj-c code it jumps from word selection to selecting the @and the quotes along with the string. Was that purposeful? If so, why?

I know the industry is moving toward swift. But I am still maintaining a bunch of obj-c code.

David A Rogers Seems you are referring to OC-3961. It wasn't intentional, looks like the issue wasn't fixed fully.
