Unable to select the entire line in any tool window

I often use "Command + Shit + [Left/Right]Arrow" to select the rest of the line before/after the cursor.

But, after the last update, it's not possible anymore to do in tool windows such as "Find in Files", "Rename" etc. When I press "Command + Shift + Arrow" the window resizes instead of selecting the text.

Hi there,

https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-267294 -- fixed for next major version (2021.2)

You can try EAP build to confirm that (if it's already included in that build ofc): https://blog.jetbrains.com/webstorm/2021/06/webstorm-2021-2-eap-3/

Check this comment for the workaround for your current 2021.1 version: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-267294#focus=Comments-27-4937123.0-0

As a workaround (until the fix isn't delivered in a stable version), you may disable the actions Stretch to Right and Stretch to Left in your keymap.
