config mouse selection

Asked by BlaWiz on 2015-02-08

In the terminal, when trying to select "file:///path/to/file.pdf" or "/path/to/file/file·tag.pdf" with double clicking it ... it will only select "///path/to/file.pdf" in the first example or "/path/to/file/file" in the second. So · and : "breaks" the attempt to select the "word". Is there a way to config which chars should break the selection in this way? or a work-around? I see eg xterm selects words in another way when double clicking.

PS: great terminal, been using it for years :)

Ahh, should have looked closer at the config file, this fixed it:

word_chars=-A-Za-z0-9,./?%&#_~·:

I was going to ask the same thing, this should be the default config IMHO :)

Thanks, I'll update the default value for word_chars to fix this problem.
