Re: Using the mouse

That would be really nice if someone would fix that. Also there are big issues when using the mouse in chrome. In firefox works better.

It would help if the mouse feature worked reliably in every browser.

Is there a way to make it read the entire line of text regardless of any links in the line? My mouse is set to paragraph but it made no difference setting it to
